UNIFIL Confirms 'Existence of a Tunnel' in Northern Israel

W300

UNIFIL Head of Mission and Force Commander Stefano Del Col, along with a technical team, on Thursday visited a location near Metulla in northern Israel where the Israeli army “has discovered a tunnel close to the Blue Line,” the U.N. force said in a statement.

“Based on the site inspection, UNIFIL can confirm the existence of a tunnel at the location,” the force added.

Accordingly, UNIFIL is now engaged with the parties to “pursue urgent follow-up action,” it said, adding that it is very important to determine the full picture of this “serious occurrence.”

“UNIFIL will communicate its preliminary findings to the appropriate authorities in Lebanon,” it said.

Israel had said Tuesday that it started an operation to destroy alleged Hizbullah tunnels on the Lebanese border.

An Israeli army spokesman has said the "attack tunnels" were not yet operational.

He declined to say how many had been detected or how they would be destroyed, but stressed all activities would take place within Israeli territory.

Israel does not occupy one single millimeter of Lebanese territory. The UN, all other international organisations, and all responsiblew people around the world agree with this and it only you and your terrorist friends who claim otherwise.
