Israel behind arms explosions in Lebanon?

YNet's Ronen Bergman, one of the country's top columnists dealing with security issues, only hints at it, but it sure sounds like he's trying to tell us that Israel has something to do with all the arms explosions in southern Lebanon.
One of Hezbollah’s main lessons following its success in the 2006 war was the establishment of as many arms depots as possible in urban areas and in non-residential regions. As result of this combat doctrine, Hezbollah is attempting to rebuild its weapons depots, under the noses of UNIFIL and with the quiet backing of the Lebanese army. This is being done as part of the preparations for the Third Lebanon War.

Israel, which invests great intelligence resources in Lebanon, is seeing this and is becoming infuriated. The Israeli aircraft that hover across Lebanon record, day after day, Hezbollah’s military buildup; however, as they adhere to the ceasefire, these aircraft cannot target the arms deliveries, which mostly arrive from Syria.

Meanwhile, UNIFIL forces are failing to detect these shipments and cannot, or do not want to, operate against them in a strict fashion.

Israel, which wishes to prove its claims, published about a year ago the intelligence files of some Lebanese villages; the photos prove the scope of the weapons being stored there.

Simultaneously, in the past two years, some of these arms depots started to explode under mysterious circumstances, like a knife in Hezbollah’s heart.
Bergman is very much in the know (he broke the story that Goldwasser and Regev were dead nearly a year before the IDF was 'shocked' to get their bodies back in black boxes). Does anyone think he's not hinting that Israel is behind those explosions?

I have some questions about Bergman. Some things he reports, makes me wonder if he's divulging state secrets or simply making stuff up. There doesn't seem to be a middle ground with him.

He is effectively confirming Silverstein in this case. I've been tweeking Silverstein over Twitter, accusing him of being a Zionist shill.

Hezbollah must have liked the PR they were getting about downing an Israeli drone. If it turns out that they were duped by a Trojan Horse instead that's gotta hurt Hezb's street cred.
