The Lebanese militant party Hezbollah organized Thursday a tour along the Lebanese-Israeli borders, hosting journalists from several media outlets "to overlook the Israeli occupation forces drilling inside the occupied Palestine borders," the party said in a statement.

Hezbollah considers Shebaa Farms and Kfarshouba, which has been under Israeli control since the 1967 six-day war as "occupied territories."

The recent verbal escalation between Hezbollah and Israel has been intense bringing into memory the devastating 33-day war between the two sides in July 2006 that ended with the United Nations Security Council issuing resolution 1701 that halted all the military operations on the border.

The statement pointed that "the occupation army divided the border zone into eastern and western ones, in which the western zone covers the lands of the occupied village of Salha, one of the seven occupied villages, which the enemy calls Avivim settlement and Naqoura along 50 kilometers."

A military official from Hezbollah, who accompanied the press during the tour, explained the reinforcement taken by Israel inside the "occupied territories," stressing that their moral is very high and they will fight any upcoming war.

For his part, political analyst and journalist Ghassan Jawad, who is known as a supporter of Hezbollah, pointed to Xinhua that "we believe that the resistance will launch operations that will surprise the enemy inside the occupied territories, the moment Israel will launch any aggression against Lebanon, and that is why this tour is important."
