The last time that Israel faced Hezbollah in a full-scale war was 2006, during the Second Lebanese War. But now The Times of Israel reports on IDF warnings that the terror group is again preparing for such conflict:

An IDF battalion commander stationed on Israel’s border with Lebanon on Wednesday said the Hezbollah terror group’s recent activity was “reminiscent of what they did before the Second Lebanon War.”

In an interview with Channel 2, Lt. Col. Eliav Elbaz described how Hezbollah was “obsessively” monitoring Israeli soldiers from across the border.

“The other side is obsessively gathering [information] about everything happening here, everything our security forces [are doing],” Elbaz said...

It’s “reminiscent of what they did before the Second Lebanon War,” he added.

The IDF officer said soldiers were training constantly and on high alert. “We are preparing for war. In the event of a war, they will have a lot more to lose,” he warned.
