On January 1, 2023, Hizbullah's public relations department released a video of Hizbullah fighters performing a nighttime live-fire exercise in which they simulated infiltrating Israeli territory and ambushing Israeli forces. The fighters, equipped with night-vision goggles and high-quality combat gear, approached a large concrete wall resembling the security fence between Israel and Lebanon and shot a nearby security camera. They then detonated an explosive device alongside the wall, entered the hole, and fired RPGs, machine guns, and suppressed rifles and handguns at steel targets with a Star of David on them and at dummies wearing Israel Defense Forces uniforms. The video ends with the fighters standing on the beach and with a quote from the Quran in Arabic, Hebrew, and English that reads: "And leave the sea in stillness, for they are certainly an army bound to drown."
