For “Israel”, a Rearmed Hezbollah in Lebanon Is Top Concern

Even with attention currently focused on Gaza resistance along the southern front, “Israel's” main security concerns lie to the north, along the border with Lebanon, Aron Heller wrote for the Associated Press.

 

“Israeli” officials have long warned the threat posed by Hamas in Gaza pales in comparison to that of Lebanon's Hezbollah with its valuable combat experience and an arsenal of some 150,000 rockets that can reach nearly every part of the occupied territories.

It's along this northern front that “Israeli” soldiers come face-to-face with Hezbollah guerrillas and where any skirmish could spark an all-out war, Heller added.

“Israeli” intelligence says Hezbollah men operate freely, generally unarmed and in civilian clothes along the border. Sometimes they come within just a few meters of the “Israeli” troops. Only a coil of barbed wire separates them but there are no interactions.

"A terror organization, unlike a country, doesn't stockpile weapons for deterrence but in order to use them one day," Lt. Col. Aviv, an “Israeli” regional battalion commander claimed. "I suspect they will now try to goad “Israel.” ... The war the “Israeli” military has to prepare for is the one against Hezbollah."

Neither side appears interested quite yet in another full-fledged confrontation like the month-long 2006 war.

The Zionist military claimed it recently uncovered militant surveillance outposts along the border, set up under the guise of a tree-planting campaign by an environmental advocacy group, "Green Without Borders."

Netanyahu also claimed Hezbollah is setting up secret rocket launching sites near Beirut's international airport. The military alleged Hezbollah is establishing new launching sites among civilians — a trap that could make it difficult for “Israel” to respond forcefully.

But the military claimed its major concern is “Iranian-backed” efforts to convert some of Hezbollah's unguided rockets into precision munitions that could wreak far more devastation on Zionist targets.
