On July 14, the IDF Twitter account shared a satellite image of the alleged weapons warehouse in the village of Ebba. A school is located just across street from the warehouse.
“Our intelligence can reveal that Hezbollah has built a weapons warehouse just 25 meters from a school in the village of Ebba, Lebanon. This endangers the lives of 300 children who attend the school,” the IDF said on Twitter.
A quick search revealed that the building marked by the IDF as a secret weapons warehouse of Hezbollah hosts a toy store called “Lovely Baby”. No signs of military infrastructure are clear in the IDF satellite image or in the available photos of the toy store.

This was not the first time Israel accuses Hezbollah of sorting weapons in civilian areas. Tel Aviv accused the group of building missile factories, depots and launch sites in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, on a number of occasions over the last few years.
Israel has been attempting to incite the Lebanese public opinion against Hezbollah for a while now. Recently, Israeli officials claimed that the group was behind an attempt to smuggle a large arms shipment to northern Israel.
