J Street Supports IDF Operations to Destroy Hezbollah Tunnels Along Northern Border

December 4, 2018

J Street is deeply concerned by the discovery of Hezbollah-built attack tunnels entering Israeli territory along the border with Lebanon. We support ongoing IDF operations to destroy these tunnels and to defend Israel’s northern border from aggression. This operation is an important reminder of the very serious threats posed to Israel’s security by the forces of Hezbollah, Syria and their ally Iran.

We call on the Trump administration and the international community to step up diplomatic efforts to reduce tensions in Syria and Lebanon, address Israel’s security concerns and prevent the outbreak of full-scale armed conflict between Israel and Hezbollah, which could escalate dangerously into a wider regional war.
