    I’d personally not let Hizballah know that I know where they are…and wire them to implode if and when needed. Otherwise they’ll just move to a new location that has to be found all over again. At least this way you could monitor and track the terrorists.

    I do not understand why Israeli Government does not makes official moves toward Lebanon directly and via UN? Those tunnels come from the Lebanese territory and can be regarded as means of aggression, which they really are, and serve as legitimate grounds for a cross border action when needed.
