Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu toured the area where IDF's Operation Northern Shield, aimed to neutralize and destroy Hezbollah's tunnels, is under course on Sunday.
"Everyone understands how this war would have been if Hezbollah fighters had infiltrated into the Galilee regions and with the Iranian army facing us in the Golanm," Netanyahu said in a speech We prevented this. And we will continue to prevent it."
"I think everyone understands that a serious threat has been removed," Netanyahu said. "Hezbollah's operational plan was to use the tunnel weapons, to infiltrate between 1,000 and 2,000 terrorists into the Galilee, to occupy land."
