Hizballah using Lebanese Armed Forces to gather intel on Israel

For my latest article for Jane’s Defense Weekly, I travelled to the Lebanese border, where a senior IDF officer told me that there is growing evidence for cooperation between the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and Hizbullah.

Highlights from the interview:

  • Hizbullah uses LAF military assets for intelligence-gathering activities against Israel
  • Hizbullah continues to avoid a large-scale conflict with Israel at this time, and is not seeking to initiate a major border terror attack, as it is sunk in Syria’s war.
  • Nevertheless, this Iranian-backed Shi’ite army continues to pose the biggest military threat to Israel.
