Hizbullah's exploitation of Lebanese population centers and civilians: Photographic evidence

Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has set up a web page with links to several videos and photographs showing how Hezbullah is hiding behind civilians. I'm going to reproduce some of the pictures for you below, but you should definitely go to the site to see the videos.
The Hizbullah terrorists in Lebanon have purposely hidden themselves and stockpiled their missiles in residential areas, thus endangering the surrounding populations. Indeed, many of the missiles recently fired at Israel were stored and launched from or near private homes, commandeered by Hizbullah terrorists wishing to shield their actions behind civilians in order to thwart Israel’s response.
1. Armed Hizbullah terrorists inside Lebanese village

Photos smuggled out of Lebanon show Hizbullah terrorists having taken up a position in the Christian neighborhood of Wadi Shahrour east of Beirut, on a truck mounted with a ZSU-23X2 anti-aircraft cannon. The terrorists are dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear among the local population.

2. Long-range Iranian Zelzal missiles in residential neighborhood

On July 17, 2006 Hizbullah terrorists stationed a truck carrying ten long-range Iranian Zelzal missiles in the Christian neighborhood of Wadi Shahrour in order to launch missiles from there against Israeli cities.

The truck carrying the missiles was targeted by the Israeli Air Force before they could be launched. Until the Hizbullah terrorists arrived with the missiles, this residential area of Beirut had not been touched by the Israelis. [Remember how everyone was surprised that Israel was bombing Christian areas of Beirut? Now we know why. CiJ]

3. Rocket fire from Maarake

Smoke tracks rise over the souther Lebanese village of Maarake, north of Tyre, after Hizbullah launches rockets into Israeli territory. (Photo - ironically - from Al-Reuters). Note the houses in the background. The photograph is dated July 23.

4. July 22, 2006: IDF forces destroyed a vehicle in the village of Mervachin, in southern Lebanon, containing anti-tank missiles. A missile stockpile was found in the basement of the village mosque, seen in photograph.
