“UNIFIL – Hezbollah’s Secret Intelligence Service” by Hal Lindsey

Throughout the month-long conflict between Israel and Hezbollah, UNIFIL’s website served as Hassan Nasrallah’s personal intelligence services.
All he needed to do was log on to UNIFIL’s official website to find daily, real time intelligence about the location, equipment, and force structure of Israeli troops in Lebanon.
UNFIL posted precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction.
New information was sometimes only 30 minutes old when it was posted, and never more than 24 hours old. At the same time, not a single item of intelligence regarding Hezbollah’s forces made it to UNIFIL’s website, in case Israel might be checking in.
The Weekly Standard reported that a review of every single UNIFIL web posting showed that, “while UNIFIL was daily revealing the towns where Israeli soldiers were located, the positions from which they were firing, and when and how they had entered Lebanese territory, it never described Hezbollah movements or locations with any specificity whatsoever.”
The Standard provided an example, posted July 25:
“Yesterday and during last night, the IDF moved significant reinforcements, including a number of tanks, armored personnel carriers, bulldozers and infantry, to the area of Marun Al Ras inside Lebanese territory. The IDF advanced from that area north toward Bint Jubayl, and south towards Yarun.”
The previous day, UNIFIL revealed that the IDF stationed between Marun Al Ras and Bint Jubayl were “significantly reinforced during the night and this morning with a number of tanks and armored personnel carriers.”
When reporting on Hezbollah, the UNFIL website spoke in vague generalities, saying only that Hezbollah fired “rockets in large numbers from various locations.”
Analysts from both the United States and Israel agreed the UNIFIL intel was of significant value to Hezbollah and exposed ‘Israeli forces to grave danger’ while obscuring intelligence about Hezbollah that would have aided the Israelis.
