i Newspaper - - PANORAMA - By Aron Heller

Is­raeli troops claim to have dis­cov­ered the sixth and fi­nal tun­nel dug by Hezbol­lah mil­i­tants for cross-bor­der at­tacks from Le­banon.

The tun­nel was the largest dis­cov­ered so far, run­ning hun­dreds of me­tres from be­neath a Le­banese home and deep into Is­raeli ter­ri­tory, said an Is­raeli mil­i­tary spokesman.

Is­rael launched Op­er­a­tion North­ern Shield early last month to de­tect and de­stroy what it called a vast net­work of Hezbol­lah tun­nels aimed at help­ing mil­i­tants to cross the bor­der to carry out at­tacks.

The lat­est tun­nel orig­i­nated from the Le­banese bor­der town of Ramyeh and in­cluded a wide a pas­sage­way that al­lowed for the move­ment of equip­ment and a large num­ber of forces.
