Netanyahu and the Security Cabinet tour the North: Operation to destroy Hezbollah tunnels almost over
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the members of the Security Cabinet toured the area in the north in which the IDF is taking action to neutralize and destroy all of Hezbollah’s cross-border terror tunnels that were dug by Muslim terrorists from Lebanon in order to infiltrate into Israel and slaughter Jews in their homes.
IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, GOC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoel Strick and other senior officers briefed Security Cabinet members on the progress of Operation Northern Shield.
“We are here in Northern Command on a Security Cabinet tour. The IDF briefed us on its actions in neutralizing the tunnels. This operation is mostly behind us.
There has been exceptional work here to deny Hezbollah the tunnels weapon. It has invested greatly in this and we have destroyed it,” Netanyahu said.
“Iran’s annual funding of Hezbollah in Lebanon to attack Israel: 1 billion dollars. Hezbollah cross-border attack tunnel: A few million dollars. Destroying this attack tunnel and protecting Israeli civilians: Priceless”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted on Friday.
