Israel’s northern commander calls on UNIFIL to dismantle tunnel

OC Northern Command Maj. Gen. Yoel Strick met with the UNIFIL commander Italian Maj. Gen. Stafano Del Col on Thursday to deliver a strong protest against Hizballah’s flagrant violations of UNSC Res 1701 by digging terror tunnels under the border. He gave him an aerial photo of a tunnel running from the Lebanese village of Ramaya under the border up to Moshav Dolev in Western Galilee. Gen. Strick demanded that a UNIFIL force meet up with Lebanese army personnel ASAP at the tunnel’s opening and disable it. Otherwise, the IDF will perform this task.

    UNIFIL is useless, it does not see anything and it costs a lot of money to the countries that support it. Italy is the one that perseveres more in this shit and just go back home that there is much more to do

    Just bomb it and bomb a bit more as it is needed to destroy the tunnel, as there may be infrastructure next to it. If not then it is a warning ….

    UNIFIL was never able to do much because it was never posted on the Lebanon-Syria border which is where most of the weapons going to Hezbollah came through. However, since the Lebanon-Israel border is the responsibility of UNIFIL, it remains to be seen what they will do about these cross border tunnels. Since Hezbollah never signed the UN1701 agreement it does not feel bound by it even though it somewhat references Hezbollah in it. Hezbollah are masters at propaganda and deception they should be called Hutzpaollah since even during the Syrian war where they took many losses they acted like it didn’t really affect them when in fact it did affect them. You can gauge how effective something is against them by the degree of purposeful opposite denial that they put out in response to it. They want to give this impression to all including their followers and opponents that they are invincible as a religious group.

    UNIFL is a total joke and waste of US Taxpayer $$$, Simply dismantle it TODAY. DeFund.
    Send an Emissary to Lebanon explaining that the Lebanese need to make a very big decision soon.
    Contain Hezy or Beirut gets leveled to 1982 again, within 48 hours of the first rocket attack. No exceptions.
    Terrorists only understand 1 language, it’s strength, not diplomacy. That way, when Hezy retreats back to Beriut, it’ll be a wasteland with nowhere to hide, strafe the lines.
    I’m getting tired of this crap already, send the message. I’m also tired of those dopes posting religious scripture here. Stay on point

    Israel should have issued an ULTIMATUM to Lebanon & UNIFEL of 24-48 hours ONLY, if & when they failed this ultimatum Israel should act unilaterally !
