Israel Carried Out Attacks Against Iranian Targets in Syria, PM Netanyahu Claims

Israel said today it had completed a search for Hezbollah tunnels from Lebanon after uncovering at least six of the passages dug secretly under the border by the Iranian-backed guerrillas. While they have at times traded blows within Syria and the occupied Golan Heights, the Israel-Lebanon border has mostly been quiet.

The last tunnel was exposed on Saturday, the army said.

Israel normally doesn't confirm individual airstrikes in Syria, unless they are raids against Iranian- and Hezbollah-linked targets in the country.

"According to our assessments, there are no longer any tunnels crossing into Israel", military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus said.

Israel says all operations have taken place within its territory.

The Army said, "In the coming days we'll investigate the new tunnel and carry out actions to neutralize it".

Benjamin Netanyahu has revealed today that Israel had carried out an air strike on Iranian weapons in Syria on Friday, in a rare public confirmation of such attacks. "We yet have much work to do and we will do it", Netanyahu said.

He said this was part of a Hezbollah plan to send as many as 1,500 fighters to infiltrate Israeli border communities during any future war. "We have prevented this - and will continue to prevent it", he said.

The military said its forces would stay deployed along the border area to monitor for any other possible underground activity, and said it holds the Lebanese government responsible for everything happening in its territory.

Hezbollah and Israel last fought a war in 2006.

Hezbollah has not commented on the tunnels, the existence of several of which was confirmed by United Nations peacekeepers in Lebanon.

Israel alleges Hezbollah had planned to use the tunnels to kidnap or kill its civilians or soldiers, and to seize a slice of Israeli territory in the event of any hostilities. The tunnel wasn't operational or a threat to Israel's citizens, Israel's military says. But with that war winding down, Israeli security officials fear Hezbollah is refocusing its attention on Israel.

The highly publicised Israeli operation to expose and destroy the tunnels has gone ahead without drawing a military response from Hezbollah.

The announcement that the operation is ending comes as military chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot steps down at the end of his term.

Israeli analysts see the operation as one of Eisenkot's important achievements.
