Israel Destroys Hizbullah Cross-Border Tunnels

(Ha'aretz) Yaniv Kubovich and Noa Shpigel - The IDF has been aware since 2006 that Hizbullah was trying to construct attack tunnels into Israel at several points along the Lebanese border. Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has spoken of a plan to take over parts of the Galilee in northern Israel in a future conflict. IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis told Army Radio Tuesday: "We hold the Lebanese government accountable. We have indisputable proof that the Lebanese government is not in control of their border. Iranian money is behind these tunnels. We are in full control of the situation and are determined to remove the underground Hizbullah threat from the northern border. The tunnels do cross into Israeli territory, but the work on them was not complete."
