Lebanese Army On High Alert As Israel Launches ‘Operation Northern Shield’ To Destroy Complex Network of Hezbollah Underground Tunnels

The IDF launched Operation Northern Shield overnight on Monday to expose and destroy cross-border attack tunnels built by Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, along the Lebanon border and into northern Israel. The operation will be led by Strick and will include troops from the Combat Engineering Corps, the Intelligence Branch, as well as the Defense Ministry’s Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure (MAFAT) will take part.

The IDF destroyed a Hezbollah tunnel that penetrated into Israeli territory south of the Lebanese village of Kfar Kila, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit announced in a statement Tuesday, launching Operation Northern Shield to protect Israel from cross-border tunnels dug by Hezbollah.

Since 2012, terror group Hezbollah has had a plan they call ‘Conquering the Galilee‘, and it is basically what you would think it is. It is the endless and ongoing operation by Islamic terrorists to drive the Jews into the sea, and destroy Israel once and for all.

“Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.” Psalm 129:5 (KJV)

Now obviously Hezbollah forces are no match for the Israeli army in an all-out war, not even close. But they don’t fight all-out war, they engage in guerilla-style warfare. One of the sneakiest and most deadly tactics Hezbollah has are the far-reaching underground tunnels that allows them to travel undetected behind Israeli borders. Once there, they pop up out of the ground and being killing Jews.

Late last night, Israel launched ‘Operation Northern Shield’ with an amazing array of tunnel-busting weapons and machinery designed to neutralize the ability of Hezbollah to attack Israel from beneath. The Lebanese army has been placed on high alert as Operation Northern Shield begins.

IDF OPENS OPERATION NORTHERN SHIELD, DESTROYING HEZBOLLAH TUNNEL FROM LEBANON

FROM THE JPOST: The 2×2 meter tunnel started in a home in southern Lebanon and stretched some 40 meters into Israeli territory, but did not represent an imminent threat to residents in the area, the IDF said. It was built starting from a home in Kfar Kila and took two years to build and had running electricity, the army said.

“The digging of the cross-border attack tunnels that the IDF has discovered, before the attack tunnels became operational and posed an imminent threat to the safety of Israeli civilians, constitutes a flagrant and severe violation of Israeli sovereignty,” said IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis.

The objective of the operation is to expose and neutralize all Hezbollah attack tunnels which have crossed into Israeli territory. The operation will take place all along the “Blue Line,” the name for the international border between Israel and Lebanon and strictly within Israeli territory.

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot held a situational assessment in Metullah with OC Northern Command Maj.-Gen. Yoel Strick, the army said.

The IDF has sent a message to UNIFIL and the Lebanese army that anyone who crosses into Israel risks their life. The IDF said it will not allow anyone to cross into Israel and called on UNIFIL to enforce UN Resolution 1701.

The IDF launched Operation Northern Shield overnight on Monday to expose and destroy cross-border attack tunnels built by Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, along the Lebanon border and into northern Israel.

The operation will be led by Strick and will include troops from the Combat Engineering Corps, the Intelligence Branch, as well as the Defense Ministry’s Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure (MAFAT) will take part.

The military stated that a number of areas close to the security fence with Lebanon, including Metula, have been declared a closed military zone and that it has beefed up troop numbers in the Northern Command ahead of all possible scenarios. No reservists have been called up.

The Lebanese army was  placed on high alert following the IDF’s announcement. READ MORE
