    Lebanon’s Hezbollah says Israel mistaken to ‘act as it wants’ in disputed maritime border area

    BEIRUT, Oct 22 (Reuters) – The leader of Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah group Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday Israel was not free to start drilling for oil and gas in the disputed maritime border area between the two countries.

    "If the enemy thinks they can act as they please before reaching a solution to this issue they are wrong," Nasrallah said in a televised speech.
