Israel mobilizes forces on Lebanon border

Thu, 12 Feb 2009 16:18:59 GMT

Israeli forces along
the Lebanese border are
now on full alert.
Israel has reportedly mobilized its forces along its northern borders amid concerns that Tel Aviv may be planning to provoke Lebanon.

The Lebanon Files news agency reported Thursday that Israeli military forces were seen heavily patrolling the northern border.

The news comes amid Israeli suggestions that the Lebanese Hezbollah may launch retaliatory attacks for the assassination of its top commander, Imad Mughniyah, who was killed in a car bomb attack in Damascus last February.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has recently touched on the issue, threatening to launch a massive military attack against Lebanon should Hezbollah try to retaliate for the assassination.

Israel's counter terrorism bureau has also issued warnings, claiming that Hezbollah was seeking to target or abduct Israelis abroad.

Hezbollah has vowed to avenge the murder of its commander, saying all evidence gathered so far indicate the involvement of Israeli spy agency Mossad in the assassination.

Last week, the Israeli military carried out a mock attack over Lebanese border regions and launched reconnaissance flights over the country.
