“It’s not hard to imagine what would have happened if hundreds of Hezbollah operatives had entered [Israel from Lebanon] through underground attack tunnels."
The IDF holds the Lebanese government responsible for the digging of the tunnels and the ramifications of those activities.
Here's the troublesome point: Israel has not complained about the American withdrawal from Syria, not publicly, anyway.
Israel is “not prepared to accept the Iranian military entrenchment in Syria which is directed against us."
Operation Northern Shield is continuing apace along the Lebanese border.
The Hezbollah leaders were on their way to a conference in Iran
An arsenal of Iranian Fajr-5 missiles was reportedly being stored in at least one of the weapons warehouses..

On Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the Za'tara appointment saying, "This is unacceptable and therefore will not take place, of that I am convinced."
The Americans distinguish between Lebanon and Hezbollah, which is why they agreed on sanctions against the terror organization.
Like the previous terror tunnels that have been found on the Northern border, this one has also been booby-trapped by the IDF.
Israel's response to a Hezbollah offensive, the spokesman warned, would target the southern Beirut suburbs of Dahieh, a Hezbollah stronghold that was attacked by Israel during the 2006 war.

Israel may preparing the foundations for a preventive strike against the terror group which has amassed an estimated 150,000 rockets at Israel's border.
The IDF booby-trapped the tunnel, and if any Hezbollah terrorists enter it, they will be killed.
