“None of the new tunnels had reached the Israeli border, unlike the six tunnels that have been destroyed by Israel,” announced an Israeli official, adding that the tunnels could still be used to infiltrate Israel.
Israel informed the United Nations of still more “underground infrastructure” tied to Hezbollah along the Israeli border with Lebanon.
The Times of Israel first reported the development, citing an Israeli official.
“Hezbollah’s construction work on these additional tunnels ceased last month when the terror organization realized its plans were known by the Israeli side,” reported the outlet. “None of the new tunnels had reached the Israeli border, unlike the six tunnels that have been destroyed by Israel.”
The additional tunnels could still infiltrate Israel, the official told the Times of Israel.
This development mirrors a report earlier this month that Hezbollah began digging cross-border attack tunnels before the 2006 Second Lebanon War, as opposed to three or four years ago, as the Israel Defense Forces has claimed.
