Lebanon tests Israeli resolve

The Lebanese government filed a complaint with the UN accusing Israel of violating Lebanese maritime rights for the Leviathan gas field. Since Israel’s border with Lebanon is not officially set, Lebanon has a meaningful claim on the field. Now Hezbollah has to claim a few former Shiite villages in the vicinity of Haifa in order to get a share in the gas field.

And why shouldn’t they? Jews gave copper and uranium mines to Jordan, oil and uranium to Egypt, and a gas field to Gaza, so why not give a gas field to Lebanon?
