Israel is in the process of uncovering even more Hezbollah tunnels under the border from Lebanon.

A key part of this campaign is to win international diplomatic pressure on Lebanon and Hezbollah.

To that end, the Israelis have been filming the new tunnels and insisting that the UN force in Lebanon and the Lebanese government help destroy the tunnels on the Lebanese side. That puts them in the diplomatically uncomfortable position of either refusing to act, or having to act against Hezbollah.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also led ambassadors on a tunnel tour:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led a group of ambassadors on Thursday through a tour of Israel’s north, urging them to “condemn the aggression unequivocally and intensify the sanctions” against Hezbollah after Israel revealed this week a tunnel network on the Lebanese border.

The cross-border tunnels “are wider and larger, and their goal is to transfer battalions, large forces, into Israeli territory, in order to come in and carry out a killing spree and kidnappings and to capture villages,” the Israeli premier stated….

Netanyahu was accompanied by ambassadors from France, Austria, Canada, Ethiopia, Brazil, Russia, EU, Hungary, Ivory Coast, Italy, Great Britain, and Poland.

When the first tunnel was unveiled, the IDF posted a video of Hezbollah operatives caught on the Lebanese end of the tunnel who run away when they come face-to-face with an IDF camera, That moment a Hezbollah terrorist comes face-to-face with an IDF camera in an attack tunnel:

The man in the video now has been identified, according to Israel’s i24 News (emphasis added), the operative trained with Mexican drug cartels near the U.S. border:

On Thursday, i24NEWS revealed the identity of an Hezbollah operative caught on camera by Israel’s Defense Forces (IDF) in a cross border tunnel on the Lebanese border earlier this week.

An unnamed security official told i24NEWS that the man who appeared on the video from the tunnel was Dr. Imad “Azaladin” Fahs, a commander of the Hezbollah observation unit on the border with Israel, as well as a commander in the tunnel unit.

“Azaladin” who is in his 30’s, has a PhD in mechanical engineering from Tehran’s University of Technology and is married with two children.According to the security official, “Azaladin” trained with Mexican drug cartels near the United States border.

Residents in southern Lebanon received text messages from Hezbollah, presenting two options; either cooperate with Hezbollah or evacuate from the area so as not to get involved in a future war.

i24NEWS source thus disputes the claim from Hezbollah which said the two men in the tunnel were drug dealers.

Hezbollah’s connection to Central and South American drug dealing cartels, and drug running to the U.S., has been well documented. Now the terror connection to our southern border is more clear.
