Israel says offshore gas secure after Turk challenge

 Leviathan holds 453 billion cu.m. of gas.
Israel will develop and defend gas platforms recently discovered in its waters, Energy Minister Uzi Landau said on Sunday after Turkey vowed to boost naval patrols in the eastern Mediterranean in a deepening diplomatic feud.

"Israel can support and secure the rigs that we are going to have in the Mediterranean," Landau told a security conference when asked if Israel would safeguard the gas platforms after the warship challenge floated last week by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
