Oil discovery raises stakes between Israel and Lebanon

Prospect of conflict between Israel and Hezbollah heightens after the discovery of oil and gas reserves in waters disputed by the two sides.

    People in south Lebanon fear another war between Israel and Hezbollah.

    In the last conflict in 2006, more than 1,000 Lebanese civilians had died compared with 23 on the Israeli side.

    But as Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley reports from southern Lebanon, the discovery of oil and gas reserves in waters disputed by Lebanon and Israel has raised the stakes.
