Video: IDF's Tunnel Sealing Material Seen Leaking Out of Lebanese Homes

(Jerusalem Post) Anna Ahronheim - The IDF destroyed a Hizbullah cross-border tunnel near the Israeli community of Metulla by filling it with material which would prevent its use. IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said Thursday that the material pumped into the tunnel has come out in several places connected to the tunnel, including residential homes in the Lebanese village of Kfar Kila from where the tunnel was dug. "This fact indicates Hizbullah's use of civilian structures in the heart of an urban area in southern Lebanon," Manelis said. A senior IDF officer said of the five tunnels discovered so far, "We found one tunnel that resembles a Hamas tunnel because of its route, but the rest of the tunnels are five stars...something that Hamas could only dream of, with ventilation shafts and electricity." Some of the tunnels were two meters wide and two meters high, and were excavated at least 25 meters deep. The attack tunnels were built to allow Hizbullah fighters to infiltrate the communities around Metulla, cut them off, and kill as many Israeli civilians and troops as possible.
