A Hezbollah commander, Haj Mehdi, uncovered in front of a number of western news agency reporters that Israel has been reinforcing its defense lines at the contact line between Lebanon and Israel.

A journalist, Nasser Atta, made a number of photos and videos from this event and released them in his twitter account.

According to Haj Mehdi, the new Israeli fortifications span 2,600 meters with a height between 7 and 15 meters. A system of electric fences equipped with cameras and advanced alarm systems are also installed.

Part of the defense system is a border road specialized for Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) patrols.

Several media reporters published photos of elements from Hezbollah in the region – one photo showed a Hezbollah fighter equipped with an Igla SA-16 MANPAD, which is considered an effective anti aircraft missile although not advanced.

It is believed that the Israeli fortifications were strengthened after Hezbollah’s reveal of its armored force last year. Israel worries about a potential surprise attack by Hezbollah on some of the border settlements.

In turn, Lebanese sources suggest that Israel may be planning a new war this summer on Lebanon, taking advantage of Syria’s lack of stability and Hezbollah’s involvement in the Syrian war.

    Those Lebanese sources don’t know shit. Neither side would be interested in a second round between Israel and Hezbollah, it would be horrific for both sides.

    Israel lays claim to the (full israel) which stretches down to Yemen, and north to a tiny bit of southwestern Turkey, and east taking most of Iraq and a tiny piece of Iran, and Jordan and Syria also fall within what the Talmud says is full Israel. This is what Israel has always been fighting for, nothing less.
    Just so everybody can be clear, their are only two sides to this war.
    Wither Israel wins and all of these other nations get exterminated, or the other nations win and the Ashkenazi-Jews must go back to their ancient home lands of Northern-Turkey from where the Khazars-(Ashkenazi-Jews) come from.
    Those are the only two options in existence.
    Means time, Israel is plotting and ploying to wipe away more populations, and push their fences forward.
    They will always expand, cause no one has ever crushed their military power or their economic power.

    Protect their flank if they ramp up in the Golan.
