Syria Says Israel Hit Airport Warehouse Near Damascus

After previously reporting the discovery of five tunnels, the Israeli military said another had been found yesterday, 55 metres deep and reaching "a few tens of metres" into Israel from a point 800 metres within Lebanon.

With the sixth Hezbollah tunnel discovered Saturday afternoon, Israel declared victory and announced the completion of Operation Northern Shield on Sunday.

Israel and the United Nations say the tunnels violate a cease-fire resolution that ended a devastating war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006.

Sanders apologises for harassment by 2016 campaign staff
Todd noted that other accusations had drawn a sense of a "pervasive culture of toxic masculinity" on the 2016 campaign. I thank them, from the bottom of my heart, for speaking out", Sanders said in a statement.

The last tunnel will be destroyed in the coming days.

Israel has struck Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian targets in the neighbouring state on dozens of occasions, although Tel Aviv rarely admits openly to carryout out specific attacks. While they have at times traded blows within Syria - where Hezbollah has been helping Damascus beat back rebels - the Israel-Lebanon border has mostly been quiet. He added that Hezbollah retained underground facilities on the Lebanese side.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says a recent Israeli airstrike in Syria targeted Iranian weapons. Israel reported the tunnel's discovery to UNIFIL, the United Nations observer force responsible for ensuring that southern Lebanon remains free of hostile forces. 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.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer To Counter Trump After Oval Office Address
On Monday, President Trump announced that he would deliver a 9 p.m. address Tuesday from the Oval Office. His administration has already spent millions constructing wall prototypes near the border in San Diego.

Most of the missiles fired by "Israeli military planes" were intercepted at around 11:00pm (2100 GMT), the source said.

The outgoing IDF chief of staff has acknowledged that Israel has been bombing Syria on a "near-daily" basis for years, in a massive military campaign allegedly aimed at degrading Tehran's supposed military buildup in the region.

The Army reiterated that it held Lebanon responsible for all activities that took place in its territory and thanked the residents of Israel's north for helping it achieve the operation's goals.
