Lebanon: Tanks were mobilized against Israeli forces said crossing blue line

According to Lebanese media, Beirut mobilized tanks in response to an alleged Israeli troop crossing of the blue line border on Sunday. This report, which came after the IDF announced the unearthing of a third Hizballah cross-border tunnel, was not confirmed by any other source. IDF foreign media spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said that on Saturday, three Hizballah operatives had used low visibility to try and remove sensors the IDF had planted east of the Lebanese village of Meiss al-Jabal, one of the focal points of Israel’s tunnel operation. They ran off when Israeli soldiers fired in the air. The location of the third tunnel uncovered has not been revealed. Read DEBKAfile special report.

    IDF is blaming us for “tunnels” supposedly tunneled by us, Hamas, only out of mistrust.

    This 3rd tunnel was a just another loose tunnel laying on the ground in the middle of the night. Suddenly, our commando chief tripps again on this one more lost tunel! Man, you must believe me, he went angry and and screaming like Hell!

    But, there was nobody around to give it back, what could we do? This was definitely not our tunnel, we could not find who lost it, and no sane Hamas fighter would keep a loose tunnel in his backyard. So, we had to bury it! How else to get rid of the problem?

    In fact, our great commander Nasrallah always said “no tunnels, no tunneling and no tunnelists allowed in Lebanon!”. We are only allowed to dig long holes, but only here and there, not everywhere. And we do not gig long holes on Ramadan because the smell of fattoush or babaghanoush cooking after dusk could give away the position of the exit to the IDF enemy.

    In conclusion, Israel tries to put the blame on the well intentioned Hamas commandos, we have no interest in tunnels, we hate tunnels, and we totaly reject tunnels!

    Also, the guards on turn that nigh were severely punished, believe me! Next time they will open large their eyes and observe who’s dropping tunnels in the Hamas zone.

    But hey, this sneaky throwing with tunnels at us must stop! Lebanon is a sovereign country, its government will never accept lobbed throws at Lebanon with tunnels like that.

    No those are just rat holes and rats like Israeli farm foods so they dig under the border. But sometimes hizballah crawl through those holes for tasty Israeli soldiers wasted food as there is no food in Lebanon.

    If you are a Lebanese Christian, you know you have lost your country to the Shiite Iranians who will next get rid of you once and for all. I am sure you will religiously continue to hate Jews. I am sure your hatred will somehow help you in Lebanon. Good luck on that one.
