IDF uncovers third Hezbollah terror tunnel from Lebanon into Israel
BREAKING: IDF forces discovered a third Hezbollah cross-border terror tunnel dug by Muslim terrorists from southern Lebanon, in order to infiltrate into Israel and slaughter Jews in their homes.
The IDF said that the tunnel does not pose an imminent threat and that it was investigating its terrain.
The IDF noted that it places the responsibility on the digging of the terror tunnels on the Lebanese government and that it considers the existence of such tunnels a grave violation of UN resolution 1701.
The IDF said that the tunnel was booby-trapped and that anyone who entered it from the Lebanese side “would face a serious danger to their lives.”
Earlier Tuesday, Lebanon’s president said that Israel’s operation to expose and neutralize cross-border terror tunnels dug by Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group won’t endanger the calm along the frontier.
Michel Aoun, a Hezbollah terror group ally, said that Lebanon takes the tunnel issue “seriously” and is prepared to “take measures to remove causes of disagreement” after receiving a full report on the situation.
Aoun added that the U.S. has informed Lebanon that Israel has “no aggressive intentions,” and also noted that his country too has “no aggressive intentions.”
An Israeli delegation of senior IDF officers is scheduled to leave for Moscow to meet their Russian counterparts and discuss operations to destroy Hezbollah terror tunnels.
“LISTEN: This is sound of terrorists digging underground attack tunnels from Lebanon into Israel. This is also the sound that helped us catch them before any Israeli civilians were killed, as Hezbollah intended”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit twitted on Monday.
