Is Hezbollah trying to cover its tracks?
By Jack Gold, World Israel News
It appears Hezbollah is working to seal the cross-border terror tunnels the IDF has exposed in recent weeks as part of Operation Northern Shield.
Footage taken from inside the tunnels by the Israel Defense Forces shows a fairly new wall that was apparently erected by Hezbollah in an attempt to close the tunnel’s exit point into Lebanon.
The IDF has been analyzing the tunnels, using a variety of means, including photography and research capabilities to explore and fully understand the tunnels.
The IDF has so far exposed four Hezbollah tunnels, and the operation to discover and neutralize more of them is expected to last several more months.
The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has confirmed that the tunnels dug by the Lebanese terror group into Israel violate Security Council resolution 1701.
“After further technical investigations conducted independently in accordance with its mandate, UNIFIL at this stage can confirm that two of the tunnels cross the Blue Line that demarcates the border between Israel and Lebanon. These constitute violations of U.N. Security Council resolution 1701,” the peacekeeping force said in a statement Monday.
Israel underscored the fact that the terror group dug the tunnels in order to infiltrate the country and carry out attacks. Hezbollah has not commented on the operation.

This Hezbollah attack tunnel dug from Lebanon into Israel was funded by Iran & costs millions of dollars. As you watch this video, think about how that money could’ve been invested in the Iranian or Lebanese people, but Lebanon allowed Hezbollah to invest it in killing Israelis. pic.twitter.com/AeUERqiAc4
