Push UNIFIL to Destroy Hizbullah's Illicit Infrastructure in Lebanon

(Twitter) Maj.-Gen. (ret.) Amos Yadlin - Hizbullah's attack tunnels into the Galilee are one component of a comprehensive Hizbullah offensive design, seeking a surprise ground operation in Israel in the next war or for separate terror attacks. Nasrallah has been talking about this since 2011. The tunnels' exposure carries a message to Hizbullah. It is exposed and vulnerable to Israel's intelligence. Its safe and secret posts may prove as death traps to its terrorists. A second strategic message is to the UN and the P5: the tunnel network was dug under UNIFIL's feet and under the UNSCR 1701 supervision regime. The routine UN reporting of "no evidence" verifying Israel's "allegations" has again crashed on the (under)ground of reality. With the now rock-piercing evidence, Israel should push UNIFIL to expose Hizbullah's illicit infrastructure north of the border and to destroy it. The writer, former head of IDF Military Intelligence, is director of the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University.
