Colonel Marley added that the Hizbullah has recently been collecting intelligence on IDF forces, and sometimes operates in civilian guise. The organization was also engaged in infrastructure works that would prepare it for future fighting.

A senior military source claimed that increased cooperation between Iran, Syria and Hizbullah is giving them an operational advantage and increases their effectiveness ahead of a clash with the IDF. However, the IDF emphasized that despite reports of a new radar operating in Syria, this claim was not familiar to them.

The material presented by the military revealed that 23,000 residents live in the village where the al-Khiam Detention Center was operating while the IDF controlled the safety zone in southern Lebanon [before the IDF pulled out in 2000]. According to information obtained by the security establishment, Hizbullah was now preparing the grounds for the next round of battle with Israel.

The army noted that some 90 activists were operating in the village vicinity, most of them belonging to special forces that are preparing—as soon as they receive the order—to lie in wait for IDF forces, alongside a “welcome” of various demolition charges, anti-tank missiles and pits filled with explosives. The IDF decided to present the information in order to demonstrate Hizbullah's scope of activity against Israel, four years after the Second Lebanon War.

The information also revealed that hundreds of short-range mortar shells and rockets have been stored in al-Khiam, and as in the past, intentionally placed adjacent to public institutions, schools and medical facilities.

A military source told Ynet that the images from al-Khiam are not exclusive, and that similar operations were taking place in the entire area. “What you see in this village, you can see in all villages in southern Lebanon. There are some 20,000 activists whose job is, in fact, to act against IDF forces from within the village. When the time comes, they will give our forces a real fight,” the source said.
