ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the indecisive attacks made by the Hezbollah militia on Israel as part of its aim for political and strategic position. In 2005, the Hamas has staged suicide bombings that prompted Israelis to launch air strikes and close border crossings. There are reports that Hezbollah's attack on Haifa on July 13, 2006 was considered a risky decision and not authorized by the core leadership. Israel's counter attack consists of air strikes and commando raids.
