Hizbullah is moving forces in anticipation of the IDF’s planned week-long civil defense drill, the group's commander in south Lebanon, Nabil Kaouk, said Friday.

The drill, which starts Sunday, will include a yet untested scenario – a Hizbullah attack on Israel’s national water carrier.

“A few thousand Hizbullah warriors will not be able to go and vote in next week’s round of local elections,” Kaouk said, implying that the terrorist organization would be heavily occupied with the goings-on in Israel at that time.

He added that Hizbullah forces would be prepared for all eventualities, warning that if Lebanon was attacked, “Israelis will not be able to find any place to hide” from Hizbullah’s retaliation.

In related news, Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah was expected to give a speech on Friday afternoon, mainly on the internal situation in Lebanon. However, he likely referred to regional tensions as well.
