On the Israeli-Lebanese border, the terrorist organization Hezbollah has erected 20 new observation and guard posts over the past year.
The pace of construction has recently accelerated in tandem with the IDF’s work on a hardened perimeter fence.
The additional stations are against UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which forbade Hezbollah from conducting border operations in the wake of the 2006 Lebanon War.
According to the source, each tower is 18 meters (59 feet) tall and is constructed parallel to the IDF’s ongoing strengthened perimeter fence.
Hezbollah retaliated by installing observation towers to look over the wall as the IDF accelerated its construction.
On Sunday, the Shtula moshav in the Upper Galil close to the border could hear the hammering and cries of four Hezbollah members.
Residents can see the agents installing observation stations just a few meters away from the moshav.
A resident of Shtula named Uri Eliyahu said, “A few days ago, we witnessed a big truck placing the balcony on top of the building, and workmen connecting and utilizing it as an observation post.”
Eliyahu added, “The outposts don’t scare me because I know Israel deters Hezbollah.”
They are constructing the watchtowers in a pitiful attempt to protest Israel’s construction along the border.
They’re attempting to provoke us because they’re angry that the IDF is erecting a wall.
But they are aware that the IDF will destroy their infrastructure if they dare to shoot or hurt us, forcing them to drink from wells for the next three years.
They can shoot from this tower and hurt us, but they are aware that whatever action they do will result in unpleasant consequences for them.
