US to greenlight Egypt sending gas to Lebanon

The US State Department is expected to give written permission for Egypt to send gas to Lebanon by way of Syria in the coming days, a diplomatic source said on Tuesday.

Egypt has sought in recent months to aid Lebanon in its ongoing economic and energy crisis by exporting gas to Lebanon, which it would have to do via Jordanian and Syrian pipelines to circumvent Israel.
