Israel destroys tunnel on Lebanon border

The Israeli military destroyed another cross-border tunnel it says was built by Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group.

Israel this month announced the discovery of the tunnels, which it says were part of a Hezbollah plot to sneak across the border and carry out attacks in Israel, the AP reported.

Israel has so far uncovered five tunnels in an open-ended operation to destroy the entire network. At least two tunnels have been destroyed.

Israel and the U.N. say the tunnels violate a cease-fire resolution that ended a devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006.
