Officials in Israel believe that the maritime dispute with Lebanon is on the brink of a solution, Kan 11 News reported on Tuesday. According to the report, US envoy Amos Hochstein is expected to arrive in Lebanon next week, bringing with him the framework for an agreement, which will in fact be a compromise between the demands of Israel and those of Lebanon - the Karish gas rig will be included in the territory of Israel, and the same company will drill both in Israel and in Lebanon.

Last month, the Lebanese government objected to the arrival of a vessel operated by London-based Energean off the Mediterranean coast to develop the Karish field. Israel has said Karish is part of its exclusive economic zone, but Lebanon argues the field is in contested waters and should not be developed until the two countries conclude their indirect talks to delineate their maritime borders.

So Hezbollah will stand by and wait to attack gas fields next week, got it. As an aside, I'd love to be in the room when the agreement is read out loud and it says Lebanon can pound sand.
