Senior IDF Intelligence Officer: 'Hezbollah Rebuilding Its Strength In South Lebanon's Towns & Villages That Are Off-Limits To U.N. Forces'

'We Do Not Rule Out Hezbollah Attack Along Lebanese Border Possibly Under Cover Of Different Signature'

Hezbollah Terrorists

Along the northern border, Israel is on high alert to face two threats. Syria has been building up its military power, buying new weapons and training more than in the past. Israel has sent calming messages to Damascus and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has declared that Israel's big civil defense exercise does not pose a threat to anyone. However, IsraCast reports that it's a different story with Hezbollah which has vowed to launch a bloody attack on the Jewish state.

Israel's biggest civil defense exercise ever comes against the backdrop of Hezbollah's threat to launch a major terror strike. Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has blamed Israel for the assassination of Hezbollah commander Imad Mugniyah in Damascus and warns of a 'bloody retaliation'. Israeli officials say Hezbollah might attack an Israeli or Jewish target abroad while a senior IDF intelligence officer does not rule out a terror strike along the Lebanese border. The officer went on to say Hezbollah might try to avoid direct responsibility by using a different 'signature' that is under cover of another terror group. Hezbollah could then dodge responsibility for an Israeli response against Lebanon.

Prof. Asa Kasher

Meanwhile, Hezbollah is now regrouping in the urban areas of south Lebanon after the Second Lebanon War in 2006. This contrasts with the underground bunkers in the 'nature reserves' in open areas of south Lebanon. Hezbollah was now building its strength in the towns and villages which are off limits to the U.N. forces which are empowered to prevent a return of Hezbollah to the south. The UNIFIL troops require the permission of the Lebanese Army in order to enter the towns and villages and this was being exploited by Hezbollah to replenish their arsenals of rockets which caused death and destruction in Israel during the Second Lebanon War. Those rockets continue to be supplied by Iran and Syria. Professor Asa Kasher of Tel Aviv and Calgary Universities played a key role in writing the IDF's Code of Conduct that has been applied not only in Israel's campaign against Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip and West Bank but also against Hezbollah guerrillas who are exploiting south Lebanese towns and villages to rebuild their terror infrastructure.

Kasher analyzes the problematics of the IDF's confrontation with an Iranian trained guerrilla force that uses civilians as human shields as cover for their attacks on Israeli civilians in Galilee.
