Bassil wants decisive Israeli answer to Karish gasfield dispute

Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil has called on Israel to "answer" Lebanon regarding its sea border demarcation proposal or risk facing "dangerous escalation."

"The dissolution of the parliament in Israel does not justify for it not to answer regarding the possible solution for sea lines and fields," Bassil tweeted.

"The Israeli government can achieve the solution if it wants, or else it has to withdraw the (Greek) ship away from the Karish field, seeing as it is not enough for it to be present south of Line 29," Bassil added.

Israel should do this "if it wants to avoid a dangerous escalation," the FPM chief warned.
