Israeli media is still reading beyond the lines of Hezbollah’s Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah’s threats to the Zionist entity regarding activity in the disputed maritime zone in the Mediterranean.
Israeli media reported that Zionist military officials cast doubt over the efficiency of measures taken to protect the FPSO (Floating Production Storage Offloading) of the Greek firm Energean which is tasked by extracting the gas and oil offshore of occupied Palestine and the disputed area with Lebanon.
Walla Israeli news website revealed that Israeli occupation military is on alert in the area of extraction activity, noting that some military officials have warned that Hezbollah is planning to move in protest against the Israeli decision to start gas and oil extraction in the disputed zone, according to Hasan Hjazi, Al-Manar’s editor of Hebrew affairs.
The officials said the occupation military is readying to confront any move by Hezbollah, expecting that such move could be by a Hezbollah boat that could intercept the Israeli oil and gas activity in the disputed zone, according to the Israeli website.
Walla noted that the occupation military, based on this reading, tasked a force to gather intelligence data on the issue and ordered to bolster the activity of the drones in the area, as well as to adopt security mechanism in Karish area in a bid to warn, foil or retaliate for any potential attack.
The Israeli news website also cited some criticism within the Israeli occupation military institution over the Israeli navy’s level of readiness for all scenarios.
Walla quoted one of the Israeli officials as saying that the Israeli occupation hasn’t deployed enough forces around the FPSO, warning that this event “is so complicated and requires both military and diplomatic mentality.”
