US denies it sent warships to protest Karish gasfield for Israel

The circulated reports about the arrival of U.S. warships to protect the Karish offshore gas field are baseless, a U.S. Embassy source told al-Jadeed TV on Thursday.

Al-Akhbar newspaper had earlier reported, quoting “UNIFIL sources,” that U.S. warships had arrived off the Karish field and started measures aimed at protecting the Energean Power gas vessel.

The newspaper also reported that “British reconnaissance aircraft and others belonging to NATO have surveyed the entire maritime area adjacent to the Lebanese border.”
