Israel has had a lot of success in recent years going after attack tunnels created by Hamas to terrorize the Israeli people. Now they are setting their sights on terror tunnels created by the terrorist group Hezbollah on the northern side of their border:

They’ve already found a couple terror tunnels and neutralized them:

Given the mountainous terrain I doubt it’s possible to build an underground detection grid in Northern Israel as they did in the south near Gaza. But if there’s a way they will figure it out. They have a lot of expertise now in detecting these terror tunnels and I’m glad they are exposing them for the world to see.
