Lebanon says Israel offered no proof of border tunnels

Israeli military digger works on the border with Lebanon in the northern Israeli town of Metula, Tuesday, Dec. 4, 2018.

:: Lebanon’s Parliament speaker, Nabih Berri, says Israel has presented no evidence to prove its claims that a network of attack tunnels has been built by Hezbollah across the countries’ shared borders.

The IDF’s spokesperson, Avichay Adraee, had published new pictures on Wednesday claiming to show the block factory in Kafr Kila village, which has transformed into “the place from which Hezbolla’s tunnel starts”.

Adraee also said that the tunnel crosses the border line by 40 meters into Israel and posted a 3D video of the border line and the block factory on his Twitter account.

Nabih Berri, Lebanon’s parliament speaker and ally of Hezbollah, said Israel offered no “coordinates or information” about the tunnels during the regular weekly meeting. His comments were carried by the National News Agency.

The UN peacekeeping mission meanwhile said Wednesday it will send a team to Israel to “ascertain facts,” calling for full access to all locations along the border.

The mission said its regular weekly meeting with the Lebanese and Israeli armies discussed Israel’s “activities” searching for suspected tunnels.

The Israeli military launched an operation on Tuesday to “expose and thwart” tunnels built by the Hezbollah militant group it says stretch from Lebanon into northern Israel. Adraee also tweeted a video of the operation.
