Israel ends military operation at Lebanese border

Israel ends military operation at Lebanese border

"Just in the past 36 hours, the air force attacked Iranian depots full of Iranian weapons in the Damascus International Airport", Netanyahu said, speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting in his Jerusalem office, as cited by The Times of Israel.

Israel is widely believed to have been behind a series of airstrikes in Syria that have mainly targeted Iranian and Hezbollah forces fighting alongside the Syrian government. In tandem we'll seize a number of locations in Lebanese territory from which Hezbollah digs tunnels that have not yet crossed into Israel.

The Israeli military said a sixth and final tunnel was found on Saturday, 55 meters (yards) deep and reaching "a few tens of meters" into Israel from 800 meters within Lebanon.

Israel and Hezbollah last clashed in 2006, with Israeli forces invading Lebanon after Hezbollah kidnapped two Israeli soldiers in a cross-border raid.

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 sneak across the border to carry out attacks.

Last but not least, it will be available in three colour variants which are black, gradient blue, and gradient red respectively. Ahead of the unveiling, the alleged Redmi Note 7 was recently spotted on the Chinese certification agency TENAA's website.

But recently Israel has spoken publicly about thwarting the weapons smuggling into Lebanon and Mr Netanyahu had said "we are committed more than ever to act against Iran in Syria".

"We have achieved the goal that we set out to achieve", he said.

The IDF also said that the "operation stripped from Hezbollah the unique offensive ability that it had built for years as part of an attack plan into Israeli territory that it wanted to conduct to create emergency situations". Conricus said the United Nations peacekeeping mission, known as UNIFIL, was updated on the latest development.

The highly publicised Israeli operation to expose and destroy the tunnels has gone ahead without drawing a military response from Hezbollah.

But with that civil war winding down, Israeli security officials fear Hezbollah is refocusing its attention on Israel. The attack took place at 11:15 p.m. (2115 GMT), it said.
