Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Dannon led a delegation of UN ambassadors to the Lebanese border to see in person the recently uncovered tunnels from Lebanon into Israel and to view the threat they pose.
The UN ambassadors got to see inside the tunnels using a robotic camera.
Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Dannon with a delegation for ambassadors are able to see with their own eye the tunnels that Hezbollah was planning to use to send hundreds of soldiers into Israeli population centers in the Galilee.
“The ambassadors hear a lot about our border with Lebanon and Hezbollah, but when you come here and see the tunnel, you cannot argue with the facts. The Iranian money reaches our border and threatens the citizens of Israel,” Dannon said. “We say clearly that Hezbollah has established its own state in south Lebanon, a state that advances terror operations against Israel. On the day we move to defend ourselves and the UN will want to condemn us, the ambassadors standing here will understand the reality.”
Absurdly, the tunnels were built under the noses of UN peacekeepers who are mandated to maintain peace on the border between Lebanon and Israel. Sadly, this is the reputation of the UN Peacekeeping. They do nothing!
Noting Israel’s operation to destroying these tunnels, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also met with the ambassadors and underscored Israel’s commitment “to preventing this aggression and thus we are protecting not only Israel but also our neighbors and the peace of the entire world.”
“Iran has many branches, one of them is Hezbollah, which has now joined the Lebanese government,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the delegates. “This is a misleading description — Hezbollah actually controls the Lebanese government and this means that Iran controls the Lebanese government.”
