Israel Launches Operation to Destroy Hizballah Attack Tunnels

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) launched operation “Northern Shield” Tuesday to destroy Hizballah’s cross-border attack tunnels that infiltrate into Israel from the Lebanese border.

The IDF said that “a number of tunnels” were dug underneath Israeli territory and constituted a “flagrant and blatant violation of Israeli sovereignty.”

The military operation is primarily taking place on Israel’s side of the northern border.

“This morning the IDF began Operation Northern Shield, the goal of which is to uncover and neutralize terrorist tunnels from Lebanon”, said Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a statement Tuesday, adding, “Whoever tries to attack the State of Israel – will pay a heavy price.”

The operation comes amid rising tensions in the region, following reported Israeli airstrikes last week targeting enemy infrastructure in Syria.

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
