Hizbullah Scouting Lebanese-Israeli Border

(Jerusalem Post) Hizbullah intelligence mastermind Mehdi Kanso, who took part in the abduction of IDF soldiers Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser in 2006, may have been scouting the Israeli-Lebanese border area several weeks ago in preparation for an attack, Israel Channel 10 television reported Sunday. Kanso was seen carrying professional photography equipment near the border and driving a Land Rover similar to the one used in the capture of IDF soldiers Benny Avraham, Adi Avitan and Omar Sueid in the year 2000. Kanso was apparently allowed into the border area with the equipment after telling UNIFIL troops that he was a reporter for Hizbullah's television station, Al-Manar.
