Israel has had to seek out new sources of fresh water for its needs. There was talk for a while about agreements with the Egyptians for drawing water from the Nile, but there has been no further progress in that regard. Therefore they have had to look elsewhere for a new source of fresh water. This is where the Litani River in Lebanon comes into play.
The Litani River gets its source from the melting snows of the mountains of Lebanon, flows through southern Lebanon, and empties into the Mediterranean Sea below the Lebanese city of Tyre. It is entirely in Lebanese territory, and is no closer than about 8 miles north of the Israeli border. The Israelis have coveted this river for a very long time as their long sought solution to their water shortages. THIS is why they have been pushing for a new war against Lebanon. Their sinister plans have always been to provoke a new war against Lebanon under totally false pretences (example: phony Hezbollah rocket attacks!). By getting into a war against Lebanon, they would invade southern Lebanon and occupy the area right up to the Litani River. Then they would simply pipe the water south into Israel itself.
Now comes the latest in a long line of provocations to get the new war against Lebanon going. I want to present the following article from Global Research, at www.globalresearch.ca, where the Israelis are again baiting the Lebanese for war by flying combat jets illegally over Lebanese territory! Here is that article:
Israeli warplanes over Lebanon
Global Research, November 10, 2010
The Israeli aircrafts crossed into Lebanese airspace over the southern border village of Kfar Kila at 9:30 a.m. local time (0630 GMT) on Tuesday and conducted several unwarranted flights above southern Lebanon as well as the capital Beirut, a Press TV correspondent in Beirut cited a statement released by the Lebanese military.
The jets left the Lebanese airspace at 11:05 a.m. local time (0805 GMT) while flying over Alma al-Shaab - a town in southern Lebanon.
On Tuesday, an Israeli reconnaissance aircraft violated Lebanon's airspace and patrolled the skies above several areas in southern Lebanon, including the village of al-Naqoura and West Bekaa region, located 73 km (45 miles) from the Lebanese capital.
Israel violates Lebanon's airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming they serve surveillance purposes.
Lebanon's government, the Hezbollah resistance movement and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, have repeatedly cited Israel's aerial surveillance flights over Lebanon as a clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country's sovereignty.
UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on the Tel Aviv regime to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
In 2009, Beirut complained to the United Nations about Israeli aircraft violating the airspace over the south of the country.
NTS Notes: The Israelis are getting desperate in their need to get a new war against Lebanon going. This latest provocation is obviously to try to get the Lebanese to take shots at their aircraft. That way they will try to justify a new invasion of southern Lebanon to grab their much needed water supply.
Again, it is through their own selfish acts that the Israelis are running out of water. It is sickening to see that their solution to this problem is to invade a neighbouring country, kill thousands in the process, and grab a new supply of water in the process to solve the problem that they created! Lets hope that the world can finally see through this sickening and dangerous game!
