Footage appears to show Hezbollah adopting Gaza arson tactics against Israel
[IsraelTimes] Lebanese terror operatives seen starting a large brush fire along the border that quickly spreads into Israel.

A fire that raged along Israel’s border with Leb on Friday appears to be the work of Hezbollah bully boyz adopting the arson techniques that Paleostinians in Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage.

have used repeatedly to attack Israel, according to footage aired Sunday by Channel 12 TV.

In the footage, Hezbollah operatives can be seen setting fires near the border. Strong winds quickly fanned the flames and caused the fire to cross the boundary and spread toward an IDF base and the community of Margaliot.

In the footage, UN peacekeepers can be seen patrolling near the fires, but making no attempt to stop the Hezbollah men from setting fires.

The fires cause several landmines places along the border to explode. Local firefighters took several hours to put out the fire in an effort that was hampered by the inability to use fire-fighting aircraft due to the proximity to the hostile border.

"Everyone knows the Lebanese side is responsible for these provocations," local official Yoram Mahluf told Channel 12. "They are testing us."

The news report said officials believe that Hezbollah would continue to set fires along the border in order to try and keep the IDF distracted and also to clear brush that special forces could use for cover.

Israel has long warned that Hezbollah plans to try and invade northern Israel in any future war and earlier this year uncovered several attack tunnels built deep into Israel that were supposed to allow its fighters to enter into Israel.

The tactic also appears to be in imitation of Paleostinian bully boyz in Gaza who have been sending thousands of arson balloons into Israel with devastating effect.

The tactic of launching balloons carrying explosive and arson devices from Gaza into Israel emerged last year as part of a series of protests and riots along the Strip’s border, known collectively as the March of Return. The simple and cheap method of attack by Paleostinians proved effective against the far more powerful Israel Defense Forces, which despite its technological and military might initially struggled to counter the threat posed by balloons and inflated condoms.

From April to June 2018, Israeli firefighters extinguished 1,954 fires started by arson attacks in the fields, forests and grasslands around the Gaza Strip. They fought 383 blazes over the same period in 2019.

In addition, throughout 2018, approximately 34,000 dunams ‐ 8,400 acres ‐ of Israeli land were burned in arson attacks, according to statistics from Israel’s Fire and Rescue Services, Jewish National Fund and Nature and Parks Authority.

As of June, 1,400 dunams ‐ 345 acres ‐ of land were damaged by incendiary devices from the Strip in 2019.
