IDF Seeks to Prevent Psychological Victory for Hizbullah

(Ynet News) Yoav Zitun - In the next war with Hizbullah, they may try to infiltrate into Israeli territory across the Israel-Lebanon border to capture hostages and fly their flag for a "victory shot."

Hizbullah is always trying to teach us a lesson, but we're trying to be one step ahead, and we are indeed one step ahead."
