The visit of Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi on the northern border, filmed from inside Lebanon
"We must assume that any Israeli action on the border is filmed by Hezbollah," Tal Beeri, a researcher at the Alma Education and Research Center said. "We are aware of the group's high alert when we stop along the border fence to ourselves film inside Lebanon.
Beeri said he did not believe Hezbollah had advanced knowledge of Halevi's arrival and that the camera operator may not have known who he was filming, only that it was a high-level visit. "His job is to film whatever is happening and Hezbollah later views the material and makes the identification. We believe they have sniper teams and anti-tank batteries in the area, which can be assembled quickly."
Al-Manar also broadcast a video showing an IDF force launching smoke grenades to move rioters away from the border near Mount Dov, while the military was operating heavy machinery there and Lebanese army forces were also present in the area.
