Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dismisses Hezbollah’s chief as being in a state of turmoil in the wake of Israel’s success in identifying and destroying a series of cross-border attack tunnels from Lebanon, and says the terror group is struggling financially in the wake of sanctions imposed on its sponsor Iran.
“Yesterday (Hassan) Nasrallah broke his silence. He is in a state of turmoil for three reasons: Firstly, due to our tremendous success in Operation Northern Shield. He and his men invested tremendous effort in the surprise weapon of the penetrating tunnels, including digging them — contrary to what he said — in recent years and in recent months. Within six weeks we completely deprived him of this weapon,” the prime minister says.
