The Syrian civil war is gradually altering the dynamic relationship between Hezbollah and Israel.Since the end of that war, the relationship between Hezbollah and Israel has been regulated by mutual deterrence.Even with the beginning of the Syrian civil war, the parameters of engagement between Hezbollah and Israel have not changed dramatically in terms of refraining from any direct cross-border engagement or attacks in Lebanon proper.By targeting Israel through the Golan, Hezbollah may have been warning against broadening Israeli involvement in Syria. Israel, in its response to the March 18 attack, targeted the Syrian Army in the Golan, warning Damascus against allowing armed attacks to originate from within Syrian territory. If perpetrated by Hezbollah, as the Israeli army suspects, this attack would be an even stronger indication of Hezbollah's willingness to respond to the Feb. 24 Israeli attack and, in so doing, further erode the post-2006 rules of engagement.
