As part of Operation Northern Shield, today the IDF destroyed a fifth Hezbollah attack-tunnel that had only recently crossed into Israel.
A number of days ago, IDF troops exposed an additional cross-border attack tunnel that was dug from the Shiite village of Ayta ash Shab and crossed into Israeli territory. A short while ago, the tunnel was neutralized by an explosion.
The IDF notified the heads of the relevant local authorities and UNIFIL in advance.
The IDF had previously found and begun to destroy four other attack tunnels which violated Israeli territory during Operation Northern Shield.
The IDF stated that it “holds the Lebanese Government accountable for the attack tunnels dug from Lebanese territory and for the consequences of this violation. This is another blatant violation of UN Resolution 1701 and of Israeli sovereignty.”
The IDF continues its operational efforts to expose and neutralize the attack tunnels as planned.
