Hezbollah mobilizing missiles from Syria to south Lebanon

Hezbollah mobilizing missiles from Syria to south Lebanon

It crossed into Israeli territory near the Galilee village of Zarit, the military said.

Some in Lebanon have questioned the IDF's tunnel claims despite a number of images and footage released by Israel purportedly documenting the sophisticated 6-by-6-foot underground passageway.

The Trump administration disclosed that Iran is behind the construction of several underground tunnels leading into Israel that Hezbollah militants and other terror forces have been using to conduct attacks, according to multiple US officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon and communicated fears that Tehran is preparing to lead a "massive regional war".

Senior political and military sources say Hezbollah had been left surprised and embarrassed by the Israeli discovery of the tunnels.

He added that the decision to launch Operation Northern Shield earlier this week was out of concern that details of the operation would be leaked to Hezbollah.

By the time the IDF's operation is over, Hezbollah's attack tunnels "will no longer exist", the prime minister vowed.

Netanyahu showed one such tunnel to diplomats from other countries in order to persuade them to impose sanctions on Hezbollah.

An anonymous senior Israeli official also told Haaretz that there is a possibility for an Israeli operation on Lebanese territory, especially if Tel Aviv detects a transfer of Iranian weapons to Lebanon.

Israel estimates Hezbollah has approximately 130,000 rockets in its arsenal, although rejects the group's claim that it has successfully acquired precision missiles.

Earlier this week, Khalid denied the existence of a plan for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit the Gulf kingdom.

Netanyahu urged the global community to impose additional sanctions on Hezbollah, stating, "I told the ambassadors that they need to unequivocally condemn this aggression against us by Iran, by Hezbollah and by Hamas, and of course, to also strengthen the sanctions against these elements". He called Hezbollah's tunnels, "part of Iran's aggression in the region". He added that the Trump administration will "do everything we can to starve the militias Iran funds and" choke off money being sent by Iran to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Hamas, Hezbollah, and a slew of other militant groups.

"We are not now in a situation where our soldiers are behind enemy lines".

"Iran is trying to act on two levels: one is to develop a nuclear arsenal".

"The governments who are still in the [nuclear deal], yes, we have a disagreement over the efficacy of the Iran nuclear deal and we think it's a deficient deal that needs to be replaced by a new and better deal", Hook said.

Under the United Nations resolution that ended the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah, Hezbollah is barred from operating in southern Lebanon.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu told UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres that he "expects the UN to strongly condemn the violation of Israel's sovereignty", according to his office's Twitter account.
