More on Hezbollah's Use of Civilian Areas

Adding to the accumulated evidence documenting Hezbollah's use of civilian areas during the recent war is a story in Sunday's Washington Post. It notes that

[Hezbollah] began preparing for a ground war almost from the day Israeli forces left in May 2000. Most of the militiamen were drawn from their villages and kept their weapons at home. Abdel-Kader said the town or village became the unit of defense, where other arms were stashed. The towns, in turn, were organized into three or four sectors, with a regional command.

"All the weapons were in the right place," he said. "They didn't need to mobilize."

For more on Hezbollah and it's use of human shields, see CAMERA's letter to Human Rights Watch.
