Hezbullah planning new kidnapping?

Israel's Channel 10 reported on Sunday night that Lebanese Hezbullah intelligence mastermind Mehdi Kanso was seen scouting the Israeli - Lebanese border several weeks ago. Kanso was involved in the kidnapping of IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev (pictured), whose dead bodies were exchanged for master terrorist Samir al-Kuntar, several lesser terrorists and hundreds of terrorists' bodies in the summer of 2008. Is Hezbullah planning a new kidnapping?
According to the report, Kanso was seen carrying professional photography equipment near the border and driving a Land Rover similar to the one used in the capture of IDF soldiers Benny Avraham, Adi Avitan and Omar Sueid in the year 2000.

Kanso was apparently allowed into the border area with the equipment after telling UNIFIL troops that he was a reporter for Hizbullah's television station, Al-Manar.

He is wanted in Israel not only for planning the abduction of Regev and Goldwasser, but also for transporting the captured soldiers from Israel to Lebanon.

Israel should do what the Russians do - Trace Kanso's family members and kidnap them first and threaten bodily harm.
At least it's not disproportionate response.

I wonder why the IDF didn't take the opportunity to abduct him. Is it afraid of Goldstone?
