Beirut Calls US Proposal on Israel-Lebanon Maritime Borders Unacceptable

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened Israel's offshore energy projects Friday as he insisted his armed movement is Lebanon's "only" source of leverage in an escalating oil and gas dispute.

"We got in the end a communique which validated the United Nations role", Satterfield said, according to SBS news. "So this game, this theatre that was Sochi.finally came out in a way that did no damage".

Washington is focused on defeating IS in Syria. But demon hides in short term: that's where differences between two countries are rougher.

"The only force you have, oh Lebanese, is the resistance", Nasrallah said in a televised speech, referring to his powerful faction.

Nasrallah also called the downing of the fighter a "unique military achievement" which will have negative consequences for Israel.

Tillerson is expected to meet with the country's top leaders Thursday - including President Michel Aoun, a key ally of the militant Hezbollah group - and discuss Lebanon's gas and border dispute with Israel.

Tillerson, during his short visit, also reinforced support for Lebanon's government headed by Hariri and for the Lebanese armed forces, which is a major recipient of USA military assistance.

"It is unacceptable for a militia like Hezbollah to operate outside the authority of the Lebanese government", Tillerson said.

The Secretary of state's visit comes at a time of revived tension in both Lebanon and neighbouring Syria.

Acting Assistant U.S. Secretary of State David Satterfield also met Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil and Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Friday.

USA foe Iran and regional militias it backs, including Lebanon's Hezbollah, have played a key role in propping up leader Bashar al-Assad, heightening fears over Tehran's spreading influence.

After his first stop at Baabda Palace, Tillerson held talks with Speaker Nabih Berri in Ain el-Tineh.

Aoun urged the United States to "work on preventing Israel from continuing its assaults on Lebanese sovereignty" by land and sea, a statement from the presidency said. The YPG is the main US ally in the fight against Islamic State militants. The United States has considered Hizballah a terrorist organization for more than two decades now. The White House has tried to go above problem on grounds that it will not help Kurds in Afrin because re is no deployed combat forces and Kurdish militiamen of that canton are not part of global coalition against ISIS; But only those who are deployed east of Euphrates and in locality of Manbij under umbrella of Kurdish-Arab coalition Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). The Israeli Air Force then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria's air defenses, according to the IDF.

"They came to inform, dictate, and threaten", he said.

Mr Hariri, for his part, reiterated that Lebanon was unwilling to give up any part of what it claimed as its territory.
