The Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot quoted an Israeli security source as saying that Hizbullah has completed military and logistical preparations for a confrontation with Israel. "Hizbullah's preparations reinforce the Israeli intelligence services' estimations that a confrontation on the northern borders of Israel is coming before one in the Gaza Strip," the source told the daily.

"This is probably what is preventing Israel from opening a wider front in Gaza," he added.

The source also pointed at the statements of top Israeli officials, including Defense Minister Ehud Barak, about Hizbullah restocking its rocket arsenal after the 2006 war.

According to Yediot, reports from several Israeli intelligence agencies have warned of impending Hizbullah strikes, especially in the wake of the February 12 Damascus car bombing that claimed Imad Mughniyeh, one of the resistance group's top commanders. The assassination has been widely attributed to Israel, which has denied any involvement.

"The Israeli Army is preparing itself for possible confrontations this year," the source said, predicting that Hizbullah would take the first chance to retaliate for the assassination of Mughniyeh.
