Lebanese sources associated with Hezbollah reported to Kuwaiti newspaper al-Watan, "Fighters in the organization and its armed units are prepared to stave off any new Israeli attack. They will surprise Israel with the quality of its weapons that will be used in any future battle."
However, the sources noted, "At the same time, Hezbollah is determined not to give Israel any excuse to start a new war." They also said that the Shi'ite group has completed its preparations for a war, including learning military lessons from the Second Lebanon War. (Roee Nahmias)
