Israel reportedly erected a defensive barrier and sonar array off the Ras al-Naqoura border area, in south Lebanon, to prevent Hizbullah divers from infiltrating northern Israel.
Media reports said Israel has obtained information that Hizbullah is investing a large sum of money to acquire undersea weapons and delivery systems to carry out attacks against the Jewish state.
A similar barrier has been deployed off the Gaza Strip.
In 2006, Hizbullah fought the Jewish State's far more advanced forces and rained more than 4,000 rockets on northern Israel.
But Israel killed 1,200 people in Lebanon, most of them civilians, according to the United Nations. Hizbullah killed 160 Israelis, most of them soldiers within Lebanese territory.
