Hizbullah Setting Fires at Israel-Lebanon Border(Times of Israel)
In footage aired Sunday by Israel’s Channel 12,Hizbullah operatives can be seen setting fires near Israel’s border with Lebanon on Friday, adopting arson techniques that Palestinians in Gaza have used repeatedly to attack Israel.
Strong winds quickly fanned the flames and caused the brush fire to cross the border and spread toward an IDF base and the community of Margaliot.
UN peacekeepers can be seen patrolling near the fires, but making no attempt to stop the Hizbullah men from setting fires.
Efforts to put out the fire were hampered by the inability to use fire-fighting aircraft due to the proximity to the hostile border.
