Israel launches operation to thwart Hizbollah tunnels from Lebanon
04 December, 2018, 15:27
Overnight Monday the Israeli Army launched an operation to destroy Hezbollah's cross-border terror tunnels from Lebanon into Israel.
"Hezbollah has taken control of Lebanon and is pushing an Iranian agenda to turn that country into a base for attacks against Israel".
The Israeli army said on Tuesday it had detected Hezbollah tunnels infiltrating its territory from Lebanon and had launched an operation to cut them off.
"The Hezbollah terror organization, which is responsible for digging the cross-border attack tunnels, continues activity that is supported and funded by Iran, to establish its terror infrastructure against Israeli civilians".
While the military says the tunnels are not operational, Lt. Conricus believes they are evidence of an even bigger threat to Israel - Iran.
The tunnels also seem to be what Netanyahu was referring to when he announced two-and-a-half weeks ago that he was holding onto the defense portfolio in wake of the resignation of defense minister Avigdor Liberman.
Netanyahu has pledged to stop arch-foe Iran from entrenching itself militarily in Syria and to keep it from transferring advanced weapons to its ally Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel has spent years attempting to tackle a network of tunnels from the Gaza Strip into Israel and has used a variety of methods to destroy tunnels and prevent them from being rebuilt. But the operation could send tensions soaring between Israel and its Iranian-backed foe, who have both been preoccupied with other conflicts since their last conflagration more than a decade ago.
As early as 2006, the IDF discovered that Hezbollah was building tunnels into its territory from Lebanon, an activity which only increased after the Second Lebanon War.
The statement did not mention UNIFIL, the United Nations peacekeeping force also charged with keeping Hezbollah out of southern Lebanon.
It said the army had "enhanced its presence and readiness" and was prepared for "various scenarios".
The statement accused Hezbollah of committing "a double war crime" as it operates from "within Lebanon's civilian population, in order to harm Israel's civilian population".
Last year, Hezbollah's leader said any future conflict with Israel could take place inside Israeli territory, and there would be "no place that is out of reach of the rockets of the resistance or the boots of the resistance fighters".
