International Community Must Constrain Hezbollah to Protect Israel and Civilians by Yaacov Ayish, The Defense Post, November 4, 2020

As anger against Lebanon’s rulers continues building, Hezbollah’s abuses – like its use of human shields – should be forcefully and continually exposed.

New Opportunities for Israel in the Cognitive Campaign in Lebanon by David Siman-Tov, Yoram Schweitzer, and Orna Mizrahi, Institute for National Security Studies, INSS Insight No. 1392, October 18, 2020

The cognitive campaign is an important element in the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. Both Israel and Hezbollah can claim achievements in this struggle, albeit limited. The current stage of the campaign has featured Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech in the UN exposing Hezbollah’s weapons stockpiles in the midst of the civilian population in the heart of Beirut and the organization’s attempts to deny it, and Nasrallah’s threats to avenge the killing by Israel of one of Hezbollah’s operatives in Syria. Negotiations on marking the maritime border between Lebanon and Israel have begun, following the collapse of Lebanon’s economic, political, and health systems. This development gives Israel an opportunity to deliver positive messages about the expected advantages for Lebanon and its citizens if they abandon the belligerence dictated by Hezbollah, which is also driven by foreign interests, in favor of political and economic dialogue aimed at solving maritime and land territorial disputes.
