The Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) carried out an operation to destroy what they claimed was the final cross-border tunnel from Lebanon, allegedly built by Hezbollah, footage released on Sunday shows.

According to the military, the 800 metre-long (2,600 feet) tunnel was dug into Israel from the village of Ramyeh in southern Lebanon.

It was discovered at a depth of 55 meters (180 feet), making it the deepest tunnel uncovered by the IDF.

The tunnel reportedly had electricity and a rail system.

With the demolition of the tunnel, the IDF wrapped up operation ‘Northern Shield,’ which launched on December 4, 2018, and aimed to find tunnels allegedly built by Hezbollah for cross-border operations.

The military confirmed discovering at least six tunnels during the month-long operation.

Considering the cost of Hamas terror-tunnels, yet another Hezb epic failure that costed ’em millions in dollars…
This is how Iranan tax-payers’ money is stupidly dilapidated instead of solving the water-crisis, the 30,000 annual death on decrepit Iranian roads or sending the mullahs back to their place : telling bullshïts to the people in mosques.
