Hezbollah tunnel dug from Lebanon is latest found by Israel

Netanyahu briefs Putin on anti-tunnel operation on Lebanese border - Kremlin

"The tunnel crosses into Israel; like the first tunnel it is not yet operational and does not pose an imminent threat to Israeli communities", he said in a briefing with journalists, according to AFP.

He said the Zionists can not tolerate such a high level of threats in confrontation with Hezbollah, which is why they have no motive for entering another war with Lebanon.

The number of tunnels the IDF believes Hezbollah has dug under the border, as well as other information connected to its tunnel-busting operation, have been barred from publication by the military censor.

"This operation is just beginning; equanimity and patience are required. We will continue to work until it is completed; this is what we will do", he declared. Gen. Yoel Strik met with his counterpart from United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), Major General Stefano Del Col on Thursday, presenting him with visuals of houses in southern Lebanon where the cross-border tunnels are being dug from leading into Israeli territory. Troops fired towards the three "in accordance with the standard operating procedures" and they fled the scene.

But military officials say that to fully neutralize the threat, Israeli forces might have to enter southern Lebanon and destroy the tunnels at their source. They did not reveal the location of the tunnel found Saturday.

Musk Addresses Pot Smoking, Impulsive Tweets On ’60 Minutes’
In a post on Twitter sharing "Tesla history trivia", Musk said that the co-founders bought the name from Siewert in 2004. Musk also said he doesn't "really want to try to adhere to some CEO template".

During their phone call, initiated by Netanyahu, "The President of Russian Federation stressed the importance of ensuring stability in the region", the Kremlin statement said.

The relationship between Russia and Israel has been strained since September, when Russia accused Israel of indirectly causing the downing of a Russian military jet by Syrian air defences following an Israeli air strike nearby.

Netanyahu's office said he reiterated in the call "Israel's policy to prevent the establishment of an Iranian presence in Syria and to act against Iranian and Hezbollah aggression".

Iran-backed Hezbollah is the only group in Lebanon not to have disarmed after the country's 1975-1990 civil war. But the operation has brought renewed attention to a frontier across which Israel and the Hezbollah fought the Second Lebanon Waa in 2006.
