On December 5, the media wing of Lebanese Hezbollah released photos of Israeli soldiers conducting military activities along the separation line with Lebanon as a part of Operation Northern Shield, which was launched by the Israeli military two days ago to uncover and neutralize any tunnel from Lebanon.
The photos show Israeli engineering vehicles digging and soldiers using what appears to be a ground-penetrating radar to scan an area along separation line. Other soldiers can be seen taking offensive positions.
Since the start of Operation Northern Shilled, the Israeli military has managed to find a single tunnel, which allegedly starts in the Lebanese town of Kafr Kela and penetrates 40 meters into Israel near northern town of Metulla.
Earlier, an official of Hezbollah warned Israel from launching any military operation inside Lebanon and stressed that the “resistance” will response to any such aggression.
Despite that Operation Northern Shilled has been limited to Israel territory so far, there is a serious concern that it may spark a new armed conflict between Lebanon and Israel.
