Israel says located second 'Hezbollah' tunnel from Lebanon

A military spokeswoman said the incident took place close to Yiftah, south of Metula, a town near which a tunnel from Lebanon was found.

The find makes this at least the second cross-border tunnel discovered since the launch of Operation Northern Shield last week to expose and neutralize terror tunnels Hezbollah has constructed along the Israel-Lebanon border since 2006.

The army said it believed the three attempted to use the cover of stormy weather to approach the Israeli forces.

Earlier on Saturday, IDF troops operating in the Rakefet enclave near the border, fired at three Hezbollah suspects who approached them in accordance with the rules of engagement.

"We'll continue to act till its completion", he said in a statement.

In addition, Walla cites a report that Israel used the U.S. and France to issue a back-channel warning to Lebanon, saying that Israel would attack Hezbollah on Lebanese territory if the group does not cease building precision-guided missiles with Iranian support.

Lebanon's official NNA news agency said Israeli forces fired shots in the air east of the village of Mays Al-Jabal after they had been surprised because of heavy fog by a routine Lebanese army patrol.

Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters the new tunnel runs into Israel but "does not pose an imminent threat to Israeli communities".

Despite not having its exact location, he said Israel asked UNIFIL, the United Nations mission monitoring the border region, to "take action and block the tunnel on the Lebanese side".

Speaking with foreign diplomats in Israel on Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he expected the UN's security council to convene on the tunnels.

Putin "stressed the need to ensure stability along the line separating Israel and Lebanon", the Russian embassy in Israel said.

Russian Federation has links to Hezbollah's allies in neighbouring Syria where it has lent President Bashar al-Assad critical support in the country's civil war.

In October, Moscow said it had delivered S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Syria, where Israel has struck Iranian targets.
