Netanyahu also said he hopes the global community imposes increased sanctions on Hizbullah in response to Israel's exposure of the tunnels.

"This morning the IDF began Operation Northern Shield, the goal of which is to uncover and neutralize terrorist tunnels from Lebanon", Netanyahu said.

According to senior officials in the Northern Command, Hezbollah's plan for the next war with Israel involved infiltrating Israeli territory through the tunnels, ambush the IDF forces that would be sent to the area, paralyze Route 90 leading to the city of Metula and isolate the area so the main Hezbollah force could invade unopposed from Lebanon.

Hariri said the issue would be taken up with both UN General Secretariat and Security Council, but stressed his government's "commitment to the full obligations of Resolution 1701 and to the ongoing coordination and cooperation between Lebanese authorities and United Nations forces".

The tunnel, as well as two others the IDF said it was working on to uncover in the western Galilee, was found as part of the military's newly launched operation to find and destroy Hezbollah attack tunnels.

Netanyahu also pointed to the hegemonic and nuclear aspirations of Hezbollah's state-sponsor Iran.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the photos and videos, one of which shows a man, described as a Hezbollah operative, walking along a tunnel up to a camera planted by the military and then running back unharmed as a small explosion is seen. The Israeli military said it had protectively increased forces along the border and warned Hizbullah to keep its distance from the tunnels.

"We are not now in a situation where our soldiers are behind enemy lines", said Livni, who served as foreign minister during Israel's 2006 war with Hezbollah.

The military provided UNIFL with a map of the area around Ramieh village on which houses are marked which are "connected to another attack tunnel that has been dug from Lebanon into Israel", army spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said.

"UNIFIL should expand its role, because evidently it's not been done". Israel has said it won't allow its chief regional foe Iran to establish a presence in Syria.

"It is possible that we will be required to act inside Lebanon", the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said according to a translation of his comments by the Times of Israel. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. "What we are doing with Hamas and with Hezbollah as well - we're doing everything we need to do". "If you pass the first 24 or 48 hours, and we are there, without an escalation, I think the risk is much lower", Netanyahu said. AAP Netanyahu said he would discuss the matter with world leaders in the coming days and that he was seeking an urgent meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss Hezbollah's "aggression".

The timing of Israel's military operations signal a deep coordination with the Trump administration, which told the Free Beacon the United States will stand side-by-side with the Jewish state as it works to thwart Iran's terror enterprise.
