Mr Hugh Sykes writes:
"A year ago tomorrow, Hizbollah captured two Israeli soldiers from across the Lebanese border. It triggered a 34-day war - more than a hundred and fifty Israelis died, and the Lebanese death toll was more than a thousand. Israel didn't beat Hizbollah, and that failure led to political confusion in Israel and high level resignations in the armed forces, who have been accused of mismanaging the conflict.
And it was disastrous for Lebanon - numerous roads were bombed and bridges destroyed, and thousands of homes and blocks of flats were reduced to rubble in days of intense Israeli bombardment."
Hugh was in Lebanon and in Israel this time last year, and is back there.
On PM tonight, he reports from the northern Israeli town of Kiriyat Shmona, where more than a thousand Hizbollah rockets fell. He also hears from the mayor of Haifa - where eleven people died in rocket attacks.
And tomorrow, he's in the Hizbollah heartland in the southern suburbs of Beirut, where about three hundred high rise apartment blocks were destroyed (nearly 15,000 individual flats); he'll tell us about reconstruction there, and the mostly defiant mood of support for Hizbollah. In the same suburbs, he also hears some defiant criticism of the movement led by Sheik Hassan Nasrallah.
BEFORE - August 2006:
Katyusha rocket damage to a stairway at Danziger Comprehensive School, Kiriyat Shmona, Israel, after the 34-Day War in 2006: more than a thousand Katyushas exploded in and around the town.
Deputy-head, and maths teacher, Ofer Zafrani, pointing out shrapnel damage to a steel cabinet in a classroom.
Window and window frame destroyed in the art class. Three Katyushas hit the school - not an obvious target, but Kiriyat Shmona became 'a military base' during the war according to Ofer Zafrani. Students at the school confirm this, and say tanks and rocket launchers fired from near their homes.
AFTER - June 2007:
Danziger school renovated and recovered.
Students checking their exam results in the freshly painted corridors. Many of the students are still jumpy, and are easily startled by loud noises.
The entrance hall - all the windows in the school had to be replaced after the Katyusha explosions.
The view west from the school South Lebanon, where Hizbollah launched their rockets, is just the other side of that 850 metre (2700 feet) mountain. Kyriat Shmona is in a pan-handle of land, with Lebanon to the north and west, and Syria to the east.
