Hezbollah on Wednesday issued a stark warning to Jerusalem, vowing to protect its maritime rights against "Israeli threats."

The comments by Hizbollah deputy chief Sheikh Naim Qassem came on the background of Israeli plans to mark the two countries’ maritime border to ensure unrestricted access to lucrative natural gas reserves.

Lebanon “will remain vigilant in order to regain its full rights, whatever it takes,” Lebanese news website Naharnet quoted Qassem as saying.
