Free Patriotic Movement chief Jebran Bassil on Thursday reiterated his call for imposing the equation “no gas from Karish without gas from Qana,” amid controversy over Israel’s positioning of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Karish offshore field.
“It is not enough that the ship is positioned south of Line 29 as long as it is above Karish. And it is not enough for Israel to say that it will extract gas from the undisputed side as long as it will be from the same field,” Bassil tweeted.
“There is a solution chance now, before Lebanon officially lodges Line 29 (with the U.N.), turning it from a negotiations line into a legal line,” Bassil added.
“Now is the time to impose the equation ‘no gas from Karish without gas from Qana,’” the FPM chief urged.
