"Resistance fighters are watching, making preparations and digging tunnels so enemy soldiers and settlers are losing sleep", the newspaper said.

"Observations of advanced electronic infrastructure and night-vision goggles are closely watching the border fence, which are able to transmit real-time information," the report added.


The newspaper noted that the "preparations are being established so Hezbollah fighters can participate in combat at any moment."

The report additionally addresses the terror tunnel infrastructure Hezbollah is creating along the northern border with Israel, taking notes from their jihadi militant counterpart Hamas.

The paper describes the level of sophistication the tunnels are being built with, saying that they include underground ventilation systems which prevents moisture from damaging equipment.

The tunnels include an electricity network and enough food to feed combatants for weeks, reads the article.
