Lebanon, Israel finalise US-brokered maritime border deal

Israeli and Lebanese leaders have signed a US-brokered deal that for the first time lays out their maritime border in the Mediterranean Sea.
It enables both countries to conduct offshore exploration for gas and oil.
The agreement comes after months of indirect talks that also ended a decades-long border dispute.
The two neighbours have no official relations and are technically at war.
Israel’s Prime Minister Yair Lapid called the agreement a diplomatic achievement.

Al Jazeera have two correspondents along the border of the two countries – Bernard Smith is in Israel and Zeina Khodr in Naqoura in southern Lebanon to discuss the latest updates.
