Hizballah’s Growing Partnership with Lebanon’s Army Provides Operational Cover

Hizballah and Lebanon’s official military – the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) – are increasingly cooperating with one another, Israeli military sources say, and this relationship is helping the Iranian-backed terrorist organization run southern Lebanon.

“We actually see them working together,” an IDF official said earlier this month during a briefing to reporters near the Lebanese border. “We see them go the same villages together. We know who is who. Sometimes the Hizballah personnel wear LAF uniforms. The LAF, of course, are allowed to be here.”

The cooperation also takes the form of joint vehicle patrols, and the LAF never enters a southern Lebanese village without gaining prior Hizballah approval.

This relationship helps Hizballah get around UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which forbids it from moving armed units into south Lebanon.

Resolution 1701 does, however, permit the LAF to be in the area, enabling the Lebanese military to act as a cover for Hizballah’s activities.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
