BEIRUT — A senior official with Hizbullah stated on Sunday that the group has a list of military targets inside Israel to hit in any future war.

Hizbullah commander in South Lebanon, Sheik Nabil Kaouk, made his comments in response to last week's release by Israel's military of maps and aerial photographs of what it described as a network of Hizbullah weapons depots and command centers in South Lebanon.

Kaouk told the state news agency that Israel's release of the information came on the anniversary of "Israel's defeat" in the 2006 war in which Hizbullah battled Israel to a stalemate.

Israel is “preparing something” for Lebanon and Hizbullah is on high alert to prevent it, unnamed sources in the group were quoted by London-based newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat as saying Saturday.

Many interpreted the IDF's publicizing of the intelligence as an attempt both to deter Hizbullah attacks and to prepare the Israeli public for a future war should it be deemed necessary.

The Hizbullah sources claimed the photos were fabrications, but said “we are avoiding any heated exchanges because we want the Lebanese’s summer to pass quietly and without incident.”
