Hezbollah to Israel:"we are ready to confront any assault"


(MENAFN After Lebanon announced a tender on a natural gas deposit located in the area of the Mediterranean Sea, the Zionist entity claimed that the block belongs to its territories which led Hezbollah to blast Israel's apparent attempts to interfere with Lebanese natural gas exploration projects, according to Press TV.

The movement's representatives have described Lieberman's statements as "a new aggression" and that Hezbollah stands ready to "decisively confront any assault on our Lebanese oil and gas rights."

"They [Lebanon] are announcing a tender on the gas field, including Block 9, which is ours by any definition," Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, adding that the companies bidding for said tender are, in his opinion, "making a grave error " because this is contrary to all of the rules and all protocol in cases like this."

It's worth mentioning that Israelis armed forces invaded Lebanon in 2016, in retaliation for a cross-border raid by Hezbollah which resulted in several Israeli soldiers being killed and two being abducted. The ensuing conflict lasted 34 days and ended with a UN-brokered ceasefire, only after claiming the lives of about 1,200 Lebanese and some 160 Israelis.
