Remember that famous campaign that went viral a month ago urging the Public Works Minister to sign Decree No.6433? Well he did end up signing it but the President has refused to sign it claiming that the government should meet first and we still have two days before we lose our right to negotiate for those additional 1,430 square kilometers.

Negotiations between the Israeli & Lebanese sides are expected to resume next week and it’s still unclear whether Israel will be negotiating on the new line (Line 29) or stick to Line 23.

One thing is for sure: the Israeli side seems more eager to end these negotiations and start drilling, while the Lebanese side can’t figure out how to form a government.
