Israel's Right Accuses Lapid of Surrendering to Hezbollah

Former Likud MK Danny Danon accused on Tuesday Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid of offering major concessions in the agreement between Lebanon and Israel to demarcate the maritime borders.


“These concessions amount to a maximum surrender to Hezbollah,” the Israeli former deputy said.

His comments came amid statements in Tel Aviv and Beirut about a great progress in the Israeli-Lebanese negotiations on demarcating the maritime borders between the two countries and the rights to extract gas.


“Why this rush now?” Danon asked, “Is it because Hassan Nasrallah threatens us? Shall we give up the huge gas reserves because of the Hezbollah threats?”


He then said the negotiations are done in secret without public discussion in the Knesset or the government.


“Lapid is playing a constitutional trick on this issue,” Danon stressed, adding that the PM does not have the ability and experience to manage these negotiations with Lebanon.
