Beirut, Asharq Al-Awsat- Israel has involved itself following the tense situation in the south and the incidents between the local populace and UNIFIL by talking about “weapons stockpiles” in the south and backing its information with photos of Al-Khiyam town showing Hezbollah’s military positions which it says are spread in 160 towns near hospitals, schools, and mosques.

On their part, Hezbollah sources linked “the recent incidents with the UNIFIL forces and the French call to change the rules of the engagement that preceded them to the Israeli fabrications about maps of military positions.” The sources told Asharq Al-Awsat: “They are preparing something for us but we are at the highest level of preparedness and calm. We will stay as far as possible from the fiery verbal rivalry because we want the summer of the Lebanese to be complete and pass safely despite all Israel’s attempts to implement what it failed to do in 2006, namely, to incapacitate the resistance. We sense a suspicious international move, especially after the statements of the Israeli chief of staff. All these are atmospheres trying to pressure the resistance.” The sources said: “Exactly like the new French policy, the behavior of the French forces in UNIFIL shows that France has returned to the year 1965 to implement the policy of conspiring against the Arab homeland.”
