Sixth Hezbollah ‘terror tunnel’ is found by military
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.
