This is the part I don't get:

Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres told the Israeli parliament, or Knesset, Wednesday that Lebanon's decision could "cause a serious escalation" in tensions between the two countries.

"We cannot agree to unilateral steps and we retain the right to defend our water in accordance with the law and international law," Peres said. He added that he hoped "Lebanon will act as a member of the international community and in accordance with the norms acceptable in it."

"Our water."

Where is it written that rain that falls on Lebanon belongs to Israel?
