Israel plans to begin drawing gas from the Karish field in the coming weeks amid growing Hezbollah threats.
Another Biden Administration foreign policy disaster could be imminent. Iran-backed Hezbollah is threatening war with Israel if it extracts gas from it’s offshore gas field. Under President Trump, peace agreements between Israel and it’s Arab neighbors were being signed. The Biden Administration came into office and blew up the peace with their appeasement of Iran.
The United States will not be able to stop Israel from retaliating against Lebanon if Hezbollah decides to attack it over the Karish gas field, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reportedly told the Lebanese prime minister in a recent meeting.
According to Saudi media reports, Blinken told Prime Minister Najib Mikati that even if Hezbollah only demonstrates a small show of force, Washington will not be able to stop Israel.
Earlier this month, the Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper claimed that Washington had increased its pressure on Israel to finalize a maritime deal following intelligence according to which Hezbollah has changed the deployment of forces and is preparing for military action.
