Netanyahu: Hezbollah tunnels part of wider plan to capture parts of Galilee

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the cross-border tunnels built by Hezbollah are part of a wider effort by the Iran-backed terror group capture parts of the Galilee from Israel.

“Capturing parts of the Galilee by Hezbollah is a concrete threat,” he tells reporters at the defense headquarters in Tel Aviv. He says the operation to destroy the tunnels will “continue until all its objectives are reached.”
