Netanyahu: Hizbullah Tunnels Are Broad - to Infiltrate Several Battalions at Once

(Prime Minister's Office) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday met with foreign ambassadors in the north of Israel, close to the IDF units that are working to expose and neutralize the Hizbullah cross-border tunnels. He said, "What Hizbullah wants to do is to have broader tunnels. If you look at the Hamas tunnels, they're very narrow, basically for one person. The Hizbullah tunnels are broad. They enable several people to come at once and also to use motorcycles, I'm pretty sure tractors and so on, in order to bring in many forces, simultaneously, which means several battalions, into our territory, with the purpose of cutting off communities here, towns, kibbutzim, and then going into a campaign of murder and kidnapping, which could happen simultaneously." "We decided to act now, before this capacity...would mature and they would have the option to do what I just described....We asked for an urgent convening of the Security Council....We think that Hizbullah should be condemned forcefully and universally on this act of aggression....This is an organization that openly says that their goal is to annihilate the State of Israel. They don't hide it any more than the Iranians do, because of course they're part and parcel of the same effort and the same ideology."
