Israel warns Hezbollah against targeting gas facilities

February 9, 2018

Israel will consider targeting its infrastructure as “a declaration of war by Lebanon and Syria”, Israel’s Minister of National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Resources, Yuval Steinitz, announced on Wednesday.

Hezbollah recently issued flyers and a video threatening Israel’s offshore gas platforms with attack, as rhetoric escalates on both sides over the ownership of lucrative gas fields located at the Israeli-Lebanese maritime border.
