A Public Works and Transport Ministry project to establish an international port in south Lebanon's Naqoura has been billed as an act of resistance against Israel that will revive villages in the area.The proposed area of Naqoura is close to Lebanon's oil and gas Block 9 .Fenianos also touched on Lebanon's potential oil and gas resources, saying that a port was "necessary".The announcement comes after Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said last week that oil and gas exploration projects in Block 9 were "very provocative" and called on international companies not to carry out work. Some of the block falls in an area that is disputed by Lebanon and Israel.A sliver of Lebanon's Block 9 sits in the disputed territory, though this does not mean any drilling would necessarily be carried in the contested area.
