Lebanon readies for attack by Israel
Fighters rearm and reinforce positions in valleys amid fears that Israel is about to launch attack.
In dramatic further evidence of growing tensions, the Observer has learned that Hezbollah fighters have been busy reinforcing fixed defence positions north of the Litani river.
Why, you may ask?
It would seem to be warm up for the attack on Iran....

Israel and the United States have long assumed that any military action against Iran's nuclear programme would draw a muscular response from its close allies in Hezbollah. According to Israeli military and intelligence analysts, any move against Iran would require a move first against (Lebanon) Hezbollah's capability to disrupt life in northern Israel with its rockets.
