Israeli forces were seen operating along Lebanon’s southern border on Thursday, as part of a reported operation to destroy what Israel’s government has claimed are Hezbollah tunnels crossing into the country from Lebanon.

Israel has accused the alleged tunnels of aiming to sneak terrorists into Israel from Lebanon.

On Wednesday, Lebanese speaker of parliament Nabih Berri said Israel hadn’t provided evidence to back up its charges that Hezbollah had built tunnels to attack Israel.

On Thursday, the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) reportedly confirmed the existence of a tunnel discovered by Israeli forces near the Israel/Lebanon border.

Alleged Hezbollah? Israel took a prisoner out of one tunnel AFAIK.

AMN suggesting it was a few poor southern Shia farmers in search of a smuggle route that did the deed? I thought better of this site. Pityful.
