IDF on Lebanon Border, Anticipating Hezbollah Clash

Last week, Stand for Israel told you that the IDF was deploying heavily on Israel's southern border, in order to combat the threats there. But, as those who stand for Israel know, the Jewish state faces threats on all sides. And that is why, Israel Hayom's Adi Hashmonai reports, the IDF is also deploying tanks and building barriers on the Israel-Lebanon border, readying for the next clash with Hezbollah:

In recent weeks, residents of the Upper Galilee region have witnessed trucks unload countless mounds of sand and watched artificial hills slowly rise, with a tank or armored personnel carrier parked atop each one.

"The hills are being built close to the cement barrier the IDF has been building in recent months along the border," an area resident told Israel Hayom, referring to Israel's border with Lebanon. "Judging from what I've seen, they are being built opposite Hezbollah watchtowers in a manner that allows [Israeli soldiers] to see past the cement wall, into Lebanon."

"While they were building the [cement] barrier, I saw a tank overlooking the work, and now we see the same tank on the hill itself," he said...

According to one Israeli official, the purpose of the new positions is to give the IDF a field of vision beyond the cement barrier which has been built along the border in recent months...

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said: "The elevated hills were built for the tanks routinely deployed throughout the sector. The elevation was carried out to improve the tanks' field of vision and the effectiveness next to the barrier."
