Should borders be defined based on the presence (or not) of prospects?
The question should be raised because in the debate on the 🇱🇧/🇮🇱 maritime border dispute, some people appear to be equating gas fields with prospects.
#Karish for example is a gas field. Its presence has been established following drilling activity in 2013. It is being developed and if everything goes as planned, production is expected in Q3 2022.
#Qana is a prospect. A prospect is an area of interest, but the presence of a gas field there has not been established. Only drilling can confirm the presence of a field and no drilling was conducted at Qana. On average, only 1 in 5 wells leads to a commercial discovery.

For folks refusing to contend with Zionist militarism & believe that Israel would cease its bombardment if Hamas was demilitarized, remember: in 1996, Israel deliberately struck a UN compound in #Qana sheltering civilians & protected by peacekeepers. Israel intends to terrorize.

#Israeli #Zionist entity committed the Qana massacre in Qana village South Lebanon by firing artillery shells on a UN refugee compound where 800 Lebanese civilians were taking refuge from the Israeli brutal war known as"operation grapes of wrath".
106 Lebanese civilians were killed including infants and more than 116 were injured.

I was a 9 year old kid..that night after all the horrible images of dead children..I became a grown up. I never knew what hate was before that night but after it..I became a woman who hates.
I hated war planes and machine guns and artillery shells and the sounds of bombs and images of death, destruction and blood.

I hated Israel.

I never knew what dignity and pride were until the 25th of May 2000..but that is another story to be told later.
