Israeli Forces Say Found 2nd Hezbollah Attack Tunnel Dug From Lebanon

TEL AVIV (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 09th December, 2018) Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said on Saturday that they had discovered the second Hezbollah attack tunnel dug from Lebanon into Israeli territory.

On Tuesday, Israel announced the launch of the operation, codenamed Northern Shield, aimed at destroying the trans-boundary tunnels allegedly dug by the Hezbollah movement to secretly transfer its militants and weapons to Israel.

"Our troops just exposed a SECOND attack tunnel that Hezbollah dug from Lebanon into Israel.

Hezbollah planned to use this tunnel to carry out an attack against Israeli civilians. We won't let them," the IDF tweeted.

The IDF added that they had placed explosives inside the tunnel, warning that "anyone who enters the tunnel does so at their own risk."

Just like the first tunnel, which was discovered during the first day of the Northern Shield operation, the facility was not operational and did not pose any immediate threat to Israeli people, according to the military.
