After the 2014 Gaza War, the discovery of tunnels dug by the militant organization Hamas prompted the IDF to boost the search for cross-border Hezbollah tunnels. In 2013 locals in northern Israel reported hearing digging, but nothing was found. Israeli Defence Forces finally used seismic sensors and radar systems to locate the structures in 2018.

A vast inter-regional Hezbollah tunnel system linking different parts of Lebanon is designed to swiftly and covertly relocate personnel and weapons, dodging the Israel Defence Forces, warns the Alma Center.

In its report, “Land of tunnels”, released on 12 August, the independent findings of which are yet to be corroborated, the tunnel system is described as being large enough to accommodate pick-up trucks with multi-barrel rocket launchers.
