Hizbullah intelligence mastermind Mehdi Kanso, who took part in the abduction of IDF soldiers Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, may have been scouting the Israeli-Lebanese border area several weeks ago in preparation for an attack, Channel 10 reported on Sunday. According to the report, 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. He is wanted in Israel not only for planning the abduction of Regev and Goldwasser, but also for transporting the captured soldiers from Israel to Lebanon.
