Lebanon-Israel border 'quiet' despite operation

On Monday, Netanyahu told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a last-minute meeting in Brussels that Israel would take military action if Beirut did not reign in Hezbollah.

The Israeli military for its part says it has always been aware that Hezbollah has been building attack tunnels stretching from Lebanon into Israel at several points along the border.

The Israeli government demanded worldwide action on Hezbollah on Tuesday for building tunnels to infiltrate and launch attacks against Israel. He declined to say how many were detected, when they reached Israeli territory and how they would be destroyed.

Israel's vulnerability to tunnels was laid bare during its war with Palestinian militant group Hamas in Gaza in 2014 when Palestinian militants used dozens of secret passages dug from Gaza into Israel to launch surprise attacks. "We will continue to do all that is necessary to defend ourselves against Iran's efforts to use Lebanon, Syria and Gaza as forward terror bases to attack Israel". The two discussed ways to "work together to block Iranian aggression in the region".

"Hezbollah is a risky terror organization acting out of Lebanon under the orders of Tehran, and its objective is to inflict damage to Israel and to Israeli citizens". The operation would yield a propaganda victory picture that the organization's leadership could use to demoralize Israel.

Bush's final journey: By motorcade, plane and train
Bush was also responsible for appointing Schwarzenegger chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. While Bush's body was in Houston, the golden lab dutifully laid next to the casket, keeping watch over his former owner.

The military is destroying the tunnels from Israel's side of the border.

The IDF released a photograph and map of what it said was a tunnel it had uncovered leading from Kafr Kila into Israel.

Army spokesperson Conricus pointed the finger at Iran for providing the funding and support for Hezbollah's tunnel program. A small explosion scared him away and the tunnel was later blown up with a more powerful blast.

Elsewhere in his comments, Hoballah stressed that Hezbollah fighters are capable of blocking any Israeli assault and launching counter-attacks on the enemy.

Some areas near the border fence had been closed off.

Wilder, Fury draw in epic heavyweight showdown
For his part, Fury wasn't initiating much offense either but was still winning rounds with his long jab and occasional right hand. The good news for LeBron and the rest of us is that both Fury and Wilder suggested they would be keen for a rematch next year.

Tensions are high between Israel and Hezbollah, which fought a month-long war in 2006.

It said it was neutralising the tunnels before they became operational and a threat to civilian communities.

Additionally, the Lebanese army command said that it is watching the situation closely, reiterating its readiness to confront any emergency situation.

Additional IDF troops were deployed to northern Israel as a precaution against potential attacks by Hezbollah, but no reservists were called up. Israel has generally refrained from engaging in Syria's civil war, though it has carried out scores of airstrikes against what Israel says were Iranian shipments of advanced weapons bound for Hezbollah.

Yoav Kish, a member of Netanyahu's party and chairman of the Knesset's Internal Affairs Committee, said the latest operation proves that what was seen as the prime minister being "hesitant and weak" in Gaza was actually "restraint" that made the move in the north possible.
