Hizbullah has reportedly “completed maneuvers” in the central region of Syria where special equipment were used to “penetrate” concrete block walls similar to the separation wall Israel is building on the border with Lebanon, Ad Diyar daily reported on Tuesday.
Quoting unnamed ministerial sources, the daily said talks between “two accredited diplomats on the sidelines of a social event touched on the issue.”
“A Western diplomat told his Arab counterpart that intelligence data acquired by his embassy assert that Hizbullah carried out maneuvers in the central region of Syria last week, using special equipment for the penetration of concrete walls similar to those constructed by Israel on the border with southern Lebanon,” the sources said.
They added, that the “maneuvers have focused on ways to breach electronic sensors, surveillance cameras, and the harmonization between ground advancement and the use of unmanned drones in addition to other exercises to violate Israeli measures along the border.”
Hizbullah's alleged exercise “is a concern for the decision-making circles,” they added.
For its part, Hizbullah sources refused to comment on the report, said the daily. They considered Israel's measures on the border express concern and fear of the capabilities of Hizbullah's Resistance.
“The Israelis realize that what they are doing is only to delay the fieldwork of the Resistance and not to prevent it,” the daily said quoting Hizbullah sources.
