Israel is to resume gas production from offshore Tamar field after a ceasefire brought an end to a surge in violence in the Gaza Strip, the energy ministry said on Monday (May 6th).
Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz had frozen operations at Tamar, Israel’s main natural gas source, on Sunday when the cross-border violence peaked. Tamar’s production platform is off Israel’s southern shore and is within range of rockets fired from the Gaza Strip.
