„Almost every Shi’ite village or neighborhood in southern Lebanon is being used by Hezbollah fighters, according to Brig.-Gen. Ram Yavne, head of the IDF Strategic Division. One civilian village pointed out by Yavne called Chakra, which has 4,000 Shi’ite inhabitants, ‚reflects the situation of every Shi’ite neighborhood, town, or village in Lebanon. In that village, 1/3 of the homes are military assets of Hezbollah.‘ Speaking at The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference, Yavne told the crowd that while it is also a military challenge, ‚this use of civilians as human shields should be condemned‘ by the world.
According to Yavne, the Middle East until 2010 was like the one that was seen on a map – a region of states with set borders. But six years later, the international community is dealing with various non-state actors, some quite extreme. The region, he said, is overrun with four major political rifts, each one clashing with the other: the Iranian-Shi’ite camp, the Sunni camp headed by Saudi Arabia and including Egypt, the global jihad camp which includes the Islamic State and al-Qaida, and the Muslim Brotherhood camp. In addition to those four political camps, the last two years has also seen the intervention of the United States and Russia in the region.“ (Anna Ahronheim: „Hezbollah keeps military assets in 1/3 of homes in Shiite villages in Lebanon“)
