Operation Northern Shield

We received the following bulletin from the Israeli Embassy this morning (4th December).

This morning the IDF launched Operation “Northern Shield”, this is a defensive operation to thwart and neutralise attack tunnels, crossing into Israeli territory, built by Hezbollah from Lebanon into Israel. Hezbollah’s building of attack tunnels crossing from Lebanon into Israel is a blatant violation of UN Security Council resolution 1701, it is an act of aggression.

Israel will do its utmost in order to protect its citizens and its territory against such an aggression.
