'Lebanese leaders have agreed to take actions at the regional and international levels against Israel’s plans to construct a border wall and the regime’s threats against Lebanon’s offshore oil and gas exploration projects.
President Michel Aoun held the meeting with Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Saad Hariri before noon at the presidential palace of Baabda on Tuesday in an attempt to boost stability amid rising Israeli threats against the country.
The Lebanese leaders discussed "the Israeli threats, and saw in them ... a direct threat to the stability" of the border region, a statement by the presidential office said.
The top Lebanese officials denounced the Israeli threats against the country’s borders as violation of the UN Security Council resolutions, noting that Tel Aviv’s measures jeopardize the efforts by the Lebanese army and the UN peace keepers to maintain the regional security since 2006.
The meeting comes after tensions flared last week between the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM), founded by Aoun, and the Amal Movement, presided by Berri, fueled by a video in which Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, who heads the FPM party, was shown calling Lebanon’s parliament speaker a “thug.” A wave of protests by Berri’s supporters ensued.
The gathering focused on discussing the necessary measures the country needs to take after Israeli remarks on oil and gas exploration in south Lebanon’s Block 9.'
