Israeli report reveals the latest movements of Hezbollah

A report prepared by the Israeli TV channel “12” yesterday, Thursday, according to military sources in Tel Aviv, revealed that Hezbollah has inaugurated 15 military outposts along the western side of the common border between the occupied territories and Lebanon.

Israeli military sources considered that the party’s inauguration of these sites adjacent to the borders of the Palestinian territories also aims to collect intelligence information about the Israeli army and monitor its movements.

The sources pointed out that the “Hezbollah” elements present in the region no longer cover their military activities by claiming that they belong to environmental organizations, but rather openly declare their affiliation with the party, and do not hide the military and intelligence nature of their activities.

The channel highlighted that, according to the Israeli army’s assessments, all the personnel who occupy these sites belong to Hezbollah’s “Radwan” unit.

The channel indicated that “Hezbollah” launched its positions specifically along the “border area” from which it carried out in 2006 the operation to kidnap Israeli soldiers, an operation that led to the outbreak of the Second Lebanon War, noting that its members are stationed in these sites for 24 hours.

She pointed out that these elements, who wear civilian clothes, and some of them are equipped with pistols, document the movements of the occupation army by filming, as it was estimated that these elements returned from Syria.

The channel stated that each “Hezbollah” site consists of a military tower or an observation point, pointing out that buildings were built to house the elements between those sites.

According to an Israeli military source, whom the channel spoke to, the step taken by Hezbollah indicates its intentions, accusing the Lebanese army and the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) of ignoring these activities.

The source considered that Hezbollah’s practices are a violation of Security Council Resolution 1701, which was issued following the end of the 2006 war, which stipulated a cease-fire.

The same source claimed that “Hezbollah” elements have recently been deliberately provoking the Israeli soldiers stationed on the borders, claiming that they insult and throw stones at the soldiers who are on patrols or stationed on the borders.

The source claimed that “Hezbollah” is trying, through these practices, to ignite the region, noting that the military establishment in Tel Aviv fears that the party will carry out operations that threaten the security of the Israeli occupation soldiers.
