Israel-Lebanon: Reaching an Agreement

The Arab-Israeli conflict has been known for tense negotiations, seemingly about to break down and lead to fighting between the parties, when at the last moment a compromise is suggested and a deal is struck. The bargaining between Lebanon and Israel on the demarcation of their maritime boundary is no exception. It had its ups and downs, but now, having gone down to the wire because of domestic factors in both Beirut and Jerusalem, the formula drafted by American mediator Amos Hochstein has been accepted by President Michel Aoun - north of the border - and Prime Minister Yair Lapid - to its south. Aoun’s term expires on the 31st of this month and Lapid faces an uphill re-election the next day. So is their administration’s approval of the Hochstein draft a done deal, or could it still be aborted, leading Israel and Hizballah to an armed clash?

To analyze this matter, we are joined from central Israel by Brigadier General (Res.) Doron Gavish, Former Air Defense Chief, Israel Air Force and a Panelist at TV7’s Power in Play
Also joining us from Jerusalem by Dr. Nir Boms, Research fellow, Moshe Dayan center at Tel Aviv University, and Amir Oren, TV7’s Editor at large and host of WT and PIP.
