... Israel's northern border from both Lebanon and now Syria. These men exhibit much bravery and military skill coming up in small contingents against some of Israel's best regular and special forces personnel who are already on high alert and at times Hezbollah is successful in stealthfully permeating Israeli borders in remote places up to a few hundred meters and planting powerful explosives and even lying in wait to ambush passing Israeli patrols. However, when these actions result in declarations of war against the Jewish State and resultant IDF retaliation, Hezbollah then resorts to firing upon and fighting Israel from amongst its counted-upon civilian cover in S. Lebanon all the way to S. Beirut and even to the Bekaa Valley and awaits quick international condemnation of Israel and pressure to end the war for the collateral damage to Lebanese civilians caught up in the crossfire even though Israel does an amazing job of warning them ahead of time and minimizing damage with pinpoint GPS-guided targeted strikes. Israel has to develop much more sophisticated early warning and robotic defense systems to keep its front line soldiers out of immediate harm's way because Hezbollah receives much intelligence from Iranian and Syrian personnel and their military support installations to plan and execute their infiltration missions and even glean military planning intelligence from listening in on IDF communications in Hebrew. Nasrallah also prides himself in planning and hoping to actually invade northern Israel one day with such surprise and force that his Shia forces will actually gain territory across the Lebanese-Israel border and be able to even hold their positions against IDF counterattacks. Israel has quite a fight on their hands with the 100,000 or so Iranian and Syrian missiles Hezbollah has acquired over the years and set up for use against the Jewish State but the IDF with the proper military leadership can operate with great speed and stealth and fight on multiple fronts simultaneously with greater force as needed.
