UNIFIL Confirms 'Existence of a Tunnel' in Northern Israel

He said that Israel's northern commander, Maj.

"Azaladin" who is in his 30's, has a PhD in mechanical engineering from Tehran's University of Technology and is married with two children.

He said that at the end of the operation, the tunnels "will no longer exist and will no longer be effective".

"Anyone who attacks us - is taking his life into his hands", he added.

Though the IDF has said that it will take a significant amount of time to destroy all of Hezbollah's tunnels, it hasn't cited the total number of tunnels it has discovered.

The Israeli military drills into the soil south of the Lebanese border in an effort to locate and destroy Hezbollah attack tunnels that it says entered Israeli territory, on December 5, 2018.

"This is another example of Iran's revolutionary foreign policy that is expansionist and destabilizing for the Middle East when Iranian backed Hezbollah is digging tunnels into another country beneath their borders", said Brian Hook, the Trump administration's top Iran envoy.

Israel's prime minister is asking the global community to impose additional sanctions on the Lebanese Hezbollah and condemn the militant group in response to the discovery of tunnels stretching from southern Lebanon into northern Israel.

Hezbollah is believed to have at least 120,000 missiles stockpiled and they are becoming "much more precise" with Iran's aid, according to Amidror, who briefed reporters on the situation during a conference call organized by the Jewish Institute for National Security of America, or JINSA.

The cross-border tunnels "are wider and larger, and their goal is to transfer battalions, large forces, into Israeli territory, in order to come in and carry out a killing spree and kidnappings and to capture villages", the Israeli premier stated.

"We are denying our enemies the weapon of tunnels systematically and decisively", he said.

"We caught Hezbollah unprepared for this event", said the officer, "[Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan] Nasrallah is very embarrassed.

Ali Bazzi, a lawmaker from Berri's parliamentary bloc, said Israel had no evidence to its claims, calling them a "distraction" and an attempt by Netanyahu to "evade" possible new indictment at home for corruption charges.

Strik also presented UNIFIL a map with the location of a second tunnel, along with houses in Lebanon that Israel says are connected to the tunnel.

Hours after touring the northern border with IDF, UNIFIL confirmed the existence of a Hezbollah cross border tunnel.

There was no immediate reaction from Hezbollah or Lebanese authorities.

In his call with Guterres, Netanyahu's office said he urged the UN Chief to strongly condemn Hezbollah for violating Israel's sovereignty and the ceasefire reached in UN Security Council Resolution #1701.

Lebanon's Prime Minister designate, Saad Hariri, said on Wednesday that the Israeli operation at the border should not lead to any escalation.
