(Worthy News) – Israel and Lebanon’s landmark maritime border deal went into effect Thursday evening after a ceremony at a UN base near the border, ending years of conflict over the matter and repeated saber-rattling by the Hezbollah terror group.
US mediator Amos Hochstein hailed “a great day” for Israel, Lebanon and the broader region. Prime Minister Yair Lapid said the agreement represented de facto recognition of Israel by Lebanon. While Lebanon’s President Michel Aoun rejected this claim, the chief Lebanese negotiator spoke of “a new era” and invoked the Abraham Accords treaties between Israel and other regional states.
Delegations from both countries met but did not interact at the Lebanese border village of Naqoura to finalize the agreement. No photos were issued from the bilateral event. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
