“It’s important for us to develop additional [natural gas] resources, but it’s also important for the Palestinians,” said Netanyahu.

“There’s a Palestinian Authority gas field adjacent to an Israeli gas field [off the Gaza coast.] We need to develop both simultaneously. This is something that the Palestinian Authority has expressed interest in.

Talks to develop an agreement that would allow the development of the two fields broke off in 2007 after Hamas forcibly took over Gaza.

Good to see all those people claiming Israel was planning on taking it for itself were wrong..

A few years too late, but it's a good step in the right direction..
