Israel’s Supreme Court rejects petitions against Lebanon’s maritime border demarcation agreement

Israel’s Supreme Court announced the dismissal of four petitions against an agreement to demarcate the maritime border between Israel and Lebanon, paving the way for an early US-brokered agreement.

Israel’s Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut and Justice Uzi Fogelman said “the reasons for rejecting the petitions will be presented separately.”

On Thursday, Esther Hayut and Uzi Fogelman expressed doubts about the arguments against the agreement on the demarcation of the maritime border with Lebanon, which was recently approved by the Israeli government.

It should be noted that Amos Hochstein, the US negotiator for the demarcation of maritime borders between Israel and Lebanon, is expected to arrive in Beirut next Tuesday or Wednesday with a copy of the agreement, with the exact date to be announced in the future, according to Hochstein’s contacts with the Israeli government. .
