Situation Calm in South Lebanon despite «Israeli» Army Op
The situation in Lebanon remains calm despite excavations that are underway by the “Israeli” entity to block alleged tunnels that it’s military claimed Hezbollah had dug to infiltrate it from Lebanon.
The “Israeli” entity released video footage of digging and pile-driving equipment at work in unidentified locations carrying out what it said were "tactical preparations to expose Hezbollah's offensive cross-border tunnel project".
But despite the situation, people on Lebanese side of the border went about their day as usual, and schools in towns along the border remained open.
On the Lebanese side, forces with the United Nations peacekeeping force watched the “Israeli” operations while taking notes, and the Lebanese Army did routine patrols in the surrounding towns.
UNIFIL said the situation in its area of operation "remains calm" and that it is coordinating with relevant parties to maintain this stability.
Earlier in the day, “Israeli” military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said the military had allegedly detected tunnels crossing from Lebanon into northern “Israeli” entity and that the “Israeli” army had initiated an operation to thwart them.
Lebanese residents in South Lebanon are known for their steadfastness, as they have endured a 33-day long “Israeli” aggression on July 2006.
