‘Israel’ is intentionally and secretly stealing the Palestinian natural resources

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has charged that the ‘Israeli’ regime has been stealing Palestinian oil and gas from a field near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

“Israel has recently started unilateral exploration activities in a gas oil field alongside the West Bank borders,” said Abdullah Abdullah, the PA deputy settlement affairs minister, quoted by Xinhua on Friday.

He further reiterated that the Tel Aviv regime has already begun extracting gas from the field, adding that nearly 80 percent of the field is owned by Palestinians.

Israel is intentionally and secretly stealing the Palestinian natural resources,” Abdullah pointed out.

He also described the move as a violation of the Oslo accord, a US-sponsored agreement between the late Palestinian Fatah leader Yasser Arafat and the ‘Israeli’ regime, which states that any exploration and extraction of natural resources should be mutually coordinated.

“The PA will not stay cross-handed. We will take urgent procedures that may include suing Israel in (an) international court,” he added.

Tel Aviv has so far refused to comment on the issue.

The ‘Israeli’ military has, meanwhile, expanded its presence in the region, preventing Palestinian villagers from accessing their lands and farms.

 

We observed drilling rigs digging six months ago, and then the Israeli media said they have started producing it,” said Salem Odeh, a citizen of the nearby village of Rantis.

 

Moreover,’Israel’ approved the development of a natural gas field off a coastline of the occupied Gaza Strip back in June.

The ‘Israeli’ regime justified the move by voicing concerns over severe shortages in its natural gas supplies as the result of interruptions of cheap gas imports from Egypt.

Until the recent popular revolution in Egypt,’ Israel’ had been receiving the bulk of its natural gas supplies from the African country.

The supplies, however, have been largely interrupted following the downfall of the US-backed former Egyptian dictator, Hosni Mubarak.

US president-elect Joe Biden and the Middle East

If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Interview with Saeb Shaath, Author and Middle East affairs expert and David Yaghoubian, Prof. of History, CSU San Bernardino.

Iran FM advises US president-elect to abandon Trump’s ‘disastrous lawless bullying’.

Shaath Said: “Zionist entity Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu and Saudi Crown Prince ‎Mohammed bin Salman have kept silent since ‎American media projected Biden’s will win.‎ We can recall the Netanyahu-Kushner plan ‎which believed in and relied on Trump’s victory ‎for the second term, that would be followed by ‎Netanyahu’s victory in the elections, aiming to ‎implement their deal of the century and the ‎normalization of Arab countries ties with the ‎Zionist’ entity,‎”

Shaath went to say :” it did not accrue to the planners that ‎Trump would become the only American ‎president in three decades not be elected to ‎serve a 2nd term in office.‎”

Shaath added “what might do away with their planes …I think Biden ‎will revive the nuclear agreement with Iran, ‎since it was an Obama- Biden’s admiration ‎achievement …he will do it in a way that avoids ‎any clash with Zionist entity.”

Shaathe went on t o say “‎ If Joe Biden rejoins the Iran nuclear ‎agreement ‎ and adopts Obama’s approach to the two-state ‎solution, with Palestine issue, which I believe he might do, since the ‎compromises made in the democratic party ‎between the Progressives ‎and the liberals during the ‎selection of the presidential candidate , indicated ‎that might be happening soon.‎”

Shaath added “That means everything that Netanyahu and ‎Kushnaier, dreamed about in making the ‎Zionist entity the pivotal state in the ‎Middle East with the Gulf States and the rest of ‎the Arabic countries as their satellite States ‎such dream is over. ‎ Since its clear that Biden needs to pay attention ‎and to focuses US resources on fighting covid-19 and ‎to Jump Startg the US economy”. ‎

‎ Shaath concluded “Since the Netanyahu – Kushner’s Deal of the ‎Century and Arab normalisation relation with ‎Zionist entity geared up to create a military ‎alliance to face Iran… Joe Biden with reviving the US commitment to the Iran nuclear agreement does not need such alliance…as well Joe does not have a Dime to waist on Netanyahu’s dreams. ..This is the new way we going to see it happening in the region.”
