IDF’s Spokesperson Unit wastes no time in the media battle, responding to explosives on Israel’s border with exposé about Hezbollah’s enticing ‘housing program.’

The IDF’s Spokesperson Unit lost no time returning fire in the media battle on Tuesday, hours after Iran-proxy Hezbollah terrorists wounded two IDF soldiers by detonating two explosives set on the Israeli-Lebanese border near Har Dov.
In a new animated video, the IDF illustrated how the terror group gives Lebanese citizens a “killer deal,” building them free homes – in return for the privilege of using the homes as weapons storehouses.
Hezbollah “is deeply rooted within the population, exploiting its infrastructure for terror activity and using its civilians as human shields. Hiding weapons in private homes is just one of the many ways Hezbollah exploits the people of Lebanon,” read a statement with the clip.
In that way, Hezbollah is acting similarly to another terrorist organization sponsored by Iran – namely Hamas, which the IDF exposed in the recent war has deeply embedded itself in the civilian population.
In the incident on Tuesday, Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack just a few hours after the dual explosions. Security officials on Wednesday said the move is uncharacteristic of the group, in that it sends a “clear message to Israel,” and could indicate a change in policy.
The security sources warn that Israel may be in danger of “losing control” of the Lebanese border, a chilling proposal that threatens the recurrence of war with the terrorist organization that launched an attack on Israel starting 2006’s Second Lebanon War, in addition to numerous terror attacks over the years.
Several senior IDF officers have raised concerns about possible terror tunnels Hezbollah may be digging along the Lebanon border. The IDF has refused to acknowledge those concerns publicly, instead launching a private investigation into the issue.
