comment Historical examples of energy wars
I can't think of a particular conflict, but I guess than in ancient times watermills (and places where watermills can be build) might have been locally considered as strategic.

+1 for Chaco War. Wikipedia: The origin of the war is commonly attributed to a conflict between the oil companies Royal Dutch Shell backing Paraguay and Standard Oil supporting Bolivia. Scholar Rafael Archondo disputes claims that the war would have been caused by interests of these companies and emphasizes the aims of Argentina to import oil from the Chaco.

comment Strange jeep-hold cable used during Operation Horev
Great analysis! Indeed it can't be an antenna itself, and your guy wire theory is most probably true. But zero chance that the guy wire is attached to the left-back of the jeep, behind the soldier? It seems to be a special jeep, that does not move often: They even wrote city distances on the front of the vehicle.
