UNIFIL confirms Hezbollah terror tunnel entry in Lebanese block factory
Following a painstaking investigation which included the observation of cement poured by the IDF into a terror tunnel opening on the Israeli side that spilled out on the Lebanese side, UNIFIL confirms a Hezbollah tunnel entry was located at a block factory in southern Lebanon.
As a part of “Operation Northern Shield”, the IDF discovered a terror tunnel and poured cement into the opening on the Israeli side. The cement spilled out of the opening on the Lebanese side – revealing it was dug between homes and a factory.
The IDF launched “Operation Northern Shield” to expose and neutralize cross-border terror tunnels dug by Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group in order to invade Israel and slaughter Jews in their homes.

In a press release by UNIFIL, the United Nations peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon said:
“On the 26 and 27 December, in the course of the ongoing investigation into the presence of tunnels along the Blue Line, UNIFIL together with the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) surveyed the premises of an old concrete factory in the southern part of Kfar Kela, after UNIFIL had observed liquified cement flowing out from the building within this facility.
“The liquid overflowing on the Lebanese side had been injected by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) through a shaft drilled on their end of a tunnel that UNIFIL had previously independently confirmed to be crossing the Blue Line in the same general area.
“Based on this observation, UNIFIL can confirm that the old concrete factory in Kfar Kela has an opening to the tunnel, which is crossing the Blue Line.
“UNIFIL is working in close coordination with the LAF in efforts to enable appropriate steps to address the violation of resolution 1701.
“UNIFIL remains engaged with the parties to ensure that all activities in sensitive areas are duly coordinated, the Blue Line is fully respected by both sides, and to help the parties uphold their respective obligations towards the cessation of hostilities under resolution 1701.”
