Israel Claims It Destroyed 200m-Long Hezbollah Attack Tunnel At Lebanese Border

Source: IDF

On December 4, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claimed that it had destroyed a 200m-long “attack tunnel” of Hezbollah at the Israeli-Lebanese border. According to the IDF, the tunnel penetrated 40 meters into Israel near northern town of Metulla, but was not yet a threat to residents.

“At this time, having exposed the tunnel, IDF soldiers are conducting engineering and operational efforts before neutralizing it,” the IDF said in a statement.

The tunnel was “neutralized” in the framework of the operation Northern Shield, which was kicked off earlier this week. The goal of the operation is to find and destroy tunnels allegedly created by Hezbollah to attack Israel in case of the conflict.

Currently, the IDF operation is ongoing on the Israeli side of the contact line. However, the IDF claims that the military effort could be expanded into Lebanese territory.

“We are prepared for all options, and the operation is only in its first day. The neutralizing of the tunnels will not necessarily take place within our territory,” IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said.

      Yeah, I was going to write that, “the hooked noses slip across the border with a white flag, some fruit and say “we want to help you” ……

      Hezbollah says “thank you my friend, see you in hell bang bang”.

    Do you think this whole story might be BS?
    If Hezbollah had built a tunnel into Israel, surely they would have booby trapped it?
    40 meters into Israel has no military value for Hezbollah.

    I’m not sure what Israel is up to, but you can bet it’s evil.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      is it anything they do, that is not evil?

      I agree, 40 meters into Israel is of no consequence to anybody. The boring/drilling rig shown in the Hezbollah images are something you would see for drilling tie-backs on a building’s foundation, i.e., small diameter drilling. Maybe large enough diameter to inject grout into the tunnel. Lot a hoopla about nothing.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Zionist criminals still hold 33 sq ks of Lebanese territory of Shebba Farms and villages near Bint Jbeil, not to mention Golan Heights and all of Palestine.

    Fake news… the zionists are clearly building up to launch a provocation … probably to distract from Bibi’s bribery charges … any excuse or false flag will do.

    I though, Hezbollah destroyes IL:…

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Total rubbish and lies by ugly Zionist scum to deflect from Nutter Yahoo’s corruption probe.

  • Sinbad2

    So they are stealing water, again.
    It must be nice to be able to steal from your neighbours and face no consequence, because your religion is special and above the law.

    That drilling rig knot heads is so they can drop a robot in hello.
    The big articulated tractor has a flat plate tamper to send vibration waves down to use in siesmographing for oil in my area nothing new here, just about time I knew one could use them for finding tunnels. We call them thumpers around here.

    WOW, shock, horror….
