On December 16, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claimed that they had found a 4th ‘Hezbollah attack tunel’ on the border between Israel and Lebanon in the framework of Operation Northern Shield.
No additional details were provided by the IDF.
Furthermore, it’s especially interesting that the IDF provides no details on the location of the alleged tunels. The only location, which was provided, was the location of the very first ‘Hezbollah’ tunel, which was allegedly found.
This situation allows some sources to speculate that the IDF is just using these mysterious attack tunels as a part of the wider PR campaign to draw the public’s attention from bribery accusations against Israeli Prime Minister, Defense Minister and minister of a few more things Benjamin Netanyahu.
Imagine terrorists digging an attack tunnel like this towards your home. Hacking away inch by inch underground in order to kill you & your family. Israelis don't need to imagine. It’s our job to protect them.
