Israel had reportedly twice pinpointed the activities of Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and almost “liquidated” him had there been no children around.
The Kuwaiti daily al-Jarida, citing high-ranking Israeli sources, said Friday an Israeli drone type ‘Shoval’ flying at high altitude has recently pinpointed Nasrallah by tracking his movements near a Hizbullah security base in Beirut’s southern suburbs.

The sources said Israeli Mossad secret services were instructed to carry out a swift operation to “liquidate” him, but added that the presence of a large number of children in the building on that day prevented such an attack.

The second time, the sources added, was when Nasrallah made a quick visit to Damascus in February for talks with Syrian President Bashar Assad and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
