Netanyahu: Northern Shield 'ensures the safety of all'

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened with heads of northern authorities on Tuesday, according to a press release.
"We are in the middle of the operation to uncover and neutralize the tunnel threat," Netanyahu said. "It is part of our efforts to nullify Hezbollah's threat, which we have done accurately and successfully thus far."
"Hezbollah is more than willing to come up from underground, kidnap civilians via the tunnels, or invade your towns and start a massacre," Netanyahu said. "Our operation prevents that and ensures everyone's safety."
