Since 2014, an IDF joint-task force of the Intelligence Directorate and the Northern Command has been tackling the problem of Hamas terror tunnels, and in 2015 it began a project to improve the defense of the northern line, including exposing and cutting off the tunnels and constructing a seven-mile (11-kilometer) stone fence.
The Israeli army said on Tuesday it had detected Hezbollah tunnels infiltrating its territory from Lebanon and had launched an operation to cut them off. "Hezbollah's tunnel project is another example of the unsafe strengthening of Hezbollah that is funded, supported and directed by Iran", the Foreign Ministry said. Israel is committed to protect its citizens and its territory.
The resistance movement Hezbollah was formed following the Israeli regime's invasion of Lebanon and the ensuing occupation of its southern parts in the 1980s, and now constitutes Lebanon's de facto military power.
Why are Israel and Hezbollah enemies?
Last year, Hezbollah's leader said any future conflict with Israel could take place inside Israeli territory, and there would be "no place that is out of reach of the rockets of the resistance or the boots of the resistance fighters". The Shiite group would use firepower and "the surprise component" of terror tunnels to 'allow infiltrators into Israel.
Israel also faces terror tunnels in the south from the Hamas terror organization in Gaza. He did not explain why the operation was launched now.
