Public Works and Transport Minister Youssef Fenianos Thursday announced a project to establish an international port in south Lebanon's Naqoura to "revive the villages bordering the south".The proposed area of Naqoura is close to Lebanon's oil and gas Block 9 .However, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said last week that oil and gas exploration projects in Lebanon's maritime Block 9 were "very provocative," and he called on international companies not to carry out work.
