UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has deemed "wholly unacceptable" the building of tunnels from one state to another after Israel announced that it had discovered Hezbollah tunnels infiltrating its territory from southern Lebanon and launched an operation to destroy them.

Speaking to Israel's Army Radio, Ya'alon said that the Israeli officials lied about the tunnels for years before they chose to carry out an operation to destroy them earlier this week.

Lebanon's Ambassador to the United Nations, Amal Mudallali, demanded the UN Security Council to condemn Israel for its activities in her country, Thursday.

In a statement released after being shown a tunnel near the Blue Line that divides Israel and Lebanon, UNIFIL said, "Based on the site inspection, UNIFIL can confirm the existence of a tunnel at the location".

The cross-border tunnels "are wider and larger, and their goal is to transfer battalions, large forces, into Israeli territory, in order to come in and carry out a killing spree and kidnappings and to capture villages", he said.

"I assess that we have a clear picture of all of the tunnels, but you can never be sure", he said.

Israel has not detailed how many tunnels have been detected, although Cornicus on Thursday said the army was working in three different areas along the border.

The letter called on the Security Council to "take all measures necessary to confront this systematic campaign being waged by Israel and Israel's ongoing violations of Lebanese sovereignty, which are a threat to the security and stability of the entire region". In Gaza, Israel is always sought to uncover Hezbollah tunnels, and in southern Syria, the movements of this regime have not stopped in the occupied the Golan Heights.

"Hezbollah is putting your lives in danger because of digging tunnels", said the Arabic audio message, which appeared to have been sent by Israel. New U.S. sanctions appear to have further constrained Iran's economy, which already had been teetering on the brink of collapse amid popular protests against the hardline regime.

The tunnel crosses into Israel but is not yet operational, he added.

Asked about European allies, particularly Germany and France, who are plotting methods to skirt the US sanctions, Hook said the United States is uniquely placed to enforce the new sanctions.

Iran envoy Hook told the Free Beacon that despite protestations from some European governments about the implementation of harsh new USA sanctions on Iran last month, European companies have been more than willing to go along with the Trump administration in order to avoid penalties.

"They don't know exactly the extent of our knowledge on their tunnel project or their plans, but we know a lot", a senior military source emphasized. "That enemy is called Iran", he said.
