While the Lebanese authorities have been in ongoing discussions over the disputed offshore area with Israel, the Syrian regime is set to start oil exploration off its southern coast in an area that includes roughly 750 sq km of Lebanon’s waters.

This scandal was brought up by Lebanese oil & gas expert Laury Haytayan who wondered if the authorities are aware of this flagrant violation and if it’s ok for our “loving” neighbor to invade our waters like the Israelis are.
