Israel, Lebanon sign maritime border deal

On Thursday, Israel and Lebanon officially approved a historic United States-brokered agreement laying out their maritime boundary for the first time. The deal would open up the possibility for both countries to conduct offshore energy exploration. Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s office said that the deal was a “political achievement” for Tel Aviv as “it is not every day that an enemy state recognizes the State of Israel, in a written agreement, in front of the entire international community”.
