Despite Israeli efforts, world remains silent on Hezbollah attack tunnels

About six hours after Israel announced its operation to detect and destroy cross-border Hezbollah attacks tunnels from Lebanon into Israel, the international community remains mum on the matter.

Israeli spokespersons, in the army and the Foreign Ministry, have made great efforts to explain that Jerusalem considers these tunnels a violation of its territory and a threat to its civilians, and is acting in self-defense. But so far, no foreign government or diplomat stationed in Israel has publicly commented on Operation Northern Shield, including in the Arab and Muslim world.
