BREAKING NEWS - Lebanon in crisis mode as Israel trespasses energy ship into dispute seas

President Michel Aoun on Sunday held phone talks with caretaker Prime Minister Najib Miqati and a number of officials following the reports about the entry of the gas drilling ship Energean Power into a sea border area disputed by Lebanon, the Presidency said.

“He asked the Army Command to provide him with accurate and official information in order to act accordingly, noting that the sea border demarcation negotiations are still ongoing, and consequently any action or activity in the disputed area represents a provocation and a hostile act,” the Presidency added.

It also noted that Lebanon had several weeks ago submitted to the U.N. a letter stressing its “adherence to its rights and maritime resources” and that “the Karish field lies in the disputed area.”
