Sixth Hezbol­lah tun­nel found

Western Daily Press - - UK & World News -

IS­RAELI troops have dis­cov­ered the sixth and fi­nal tun­nel dug by Hezbol­lah mil­i­tants for cross­bor­der at­tacks, of­fi­cials said.

The fi­nal tun­nel was the largest one dis­cov­ered so far, run­ning hun­dreds of me­tres from un­der a Le­banese home and deep into Is­raeli ter­ri­tory, mil­i­tary spokesman Lt Col Jonathan Con­ri­cus said.

Is­rael launched Oper­a­tion North­ern Shield early last month to de­tect and de­stroy tun­nels aimed at help­ing mil­i­tants sneak across the bor­der.
