Yes, part of what you say is true. Hezbollah used the cowardly approach of oftentimes hiding behind and around civilians. But Israel's use of cluster bombs is an indication that it simply did not care how many civilians they killed, since they knew they could just cite Hezbollah's cowardly tactics as the sole reason. The IDF TROOPS may have operated outside of civilian centers, but IDF cluster bombs were dropped in heavily-populated residential areas. Both Israel and Hezbollah are responsible for the civilian deaths in Lebanon, not only Hezbollah. Israel did not even have to start this war: it happened so soon after the kidnapping that it is clear they did not even try to send Mossad in first to retrieve the soldiers. It was merely an excuse to batter Lebanon, nothing more. Did Hezbollah exacerbate the situation by responding with rockets? Yes. Does that make Israel right? No.
