Explosions heard in northern Israel as IDF begins destroying Hezbollah tunnels

The sounds of explosions heard in the western Galilee this evening are part of the military’s efforts to destroy the attack tunnels dug into northern Israel from Lebanon, the army says.

“An announcement was given ahead of time to the heads of the relevant local councils and residents of the area,” the IDF says.

The army says people nearby can expect to see and hear increased military activity as its efforts to destroy the tunnels continue into the night and through the coming days.
