'Israel preparing to occupy Lebanon'

Israel troops are conducting military drills to get prepared for being deployed in Lebanon, in a move Tel Aviv says is aimed at preventing "rocket attacks by Hezbollah," Israeli sources say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF such an invasion is contemplated by the Israeli government, it has nothing to do with "...rocket attacks by Hezbollah."

The timing of such an attack has to do with two issues.

First, the issue of water. Israel has long coveted the Litani River and its water resources. Turkey has just cancelled a water deal with Israel as part of the fallout from the flotilla massacre, so this is one factor in a potential Israeli government decision to reinvade.

Secondly, a natural gas resource has been discovered off the Mediterranean coast,which Israel claims as theirs.

"Large discoveries of gas off Israel’s Mediterranean coast have sparked a debate between the neighboring countries over their respective rights to energy resources in the area. While Lebanon has not officially accused Israel of exploring for gas outside its territorial waters, the issue has inflamed tensions because the two states are technically at war.

Israel’s Minister of National Infrastructures Uzi Landau warned on June 23 that his government was willing to use force to protect its undersea gas finds."
