Does this mean they will patrol at night?

The Jerusalem Post is reporting that UNIFIL is on 'high alert' for attacks by Global Jihad and Hezbullah. The Post bases its report on a 'high ranking officer' in the multi-national force.
According to the officer, warnings transmitted recently by the IDF regarding potential threats, were "taken seriously" and were being handled with extreme caution. The officer refused to reveal if changes had been made to security procedures in UNIFIL bases, but said that necessary measures were taken.

"This threat is serious," the high-ranking officer said, "and we are taking the necessary precautions."

Two weeks ago, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, head of the Military Intelligence Research Division, told the cabinet that there were increasing signs of global Jihad elements setting up a presence in Lebanon and planning attacks against UNIFIL. The high-ranking officer said that the Global Jihad terror cells posed a direct threat to the multinational force in southern Lebanon and particularly to French, Italian, and Spanish soldiers.
So does this mean that UNIFIL is going to start patrolling at night?
