A state of panic gripped Israeli northern towns Wednesday as the Jewish state braced itself for a possible Hezbollah reprisal over last week's airstrike that killed six party fighters and a senior Iranian general in Syria's Golan Heights.An Israeli citizen, interviewed by MTV, complained that most Jewish settlements near the border with Lebanon have been closed as Israel prepared the population for a retaliatory action by Hezbollah for the death of one its field commanders, the son of slain commander Imad Mughniyeh, and four other fighters in the Israeli raid that targeted a Hezbollah convoy in the Syrian town of Qunaitra last Sunday.Reflecting tension over a possible Hezbollah retaliation, Israeli tanks were witnessed taking up new positions along Lebanon's southeastern border Wednesday, as U.N. peacekeepers and Lebanese Army troops boosted their patrols in the area. Israeli media have reported that the Jewish state is bolstering its forces along the border in anticipation of a retaliatory attack.Hezbollah buried the last two of its six slain fighters.
