When Israel announced on December 4 that it had launched Operation Northern Shield to destroy Hezbollah terror tunnels from Lebanon, Charles D. (Chuck) Freilich, immediately posted on Facebook, “Whatever the reason for the specific timing of today’s IDF operation against Hezbollah tunnels, whether related to Bibi’s [Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s] legal/electoral problems or not, the tunnels present an unacceptable threat, had to be dealt with and Israel has an absolute right of self-defense. The truly big challenge is Hezbollah’s rocket capability, especially the precise ones. One step at a time. They and Iran must be stopped. IDF to be congratulated for a job well done!”
