Also on Thursday, the Jerusalem Post quoted another official saying that Russian Federation has deployed forces on the Syrian-Lebanese border with the aim of preventing the transfer of weapons and precision-guided technology to Hezbollah.

The army has dismissed any suggestion of political influence in the operation, but some in the opposition, while supporting the army's actions, have pointed to how Netanyahu handled the announcement.

Hezbollah receives the majority of its funding from Iran, supplementing Iranian aid with a vast worldwide criminal network that traffics in illegal narcotics and money laundering. But even before that, Bahrain provided a base for USA naval activity in the Persian Gulf; that started in 1947.

As the Zionists fear of Lebanese Hezbollah's power increases day by day, they make military drills to practice the real battle with the Lebanese resistance's group.

USA officials fear these recent moves by Iran are a preview of its preparations for a "massive regional war".

In his call with Guterres, Netanyahu's office said he urged the UN Chief to strongly condemn Hezbollah for violating Israel's sovereignty and the ceasefire reached in UN Security Council Resolution #1701.

Colonel Jonathan Conricus of the IDF Spokesperson's unit, in a briefing on the northern border called after the IDF launched an operation in the early hours of Tuesday morning to expose and neutralize Hezbollah tunnels crossing into Israel. 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.

Meanwhile, the Trump administration is seeking to thwart Iran's military operations by choking the regime's sources of income.

"We have seen only full compliance by European corporations" connected to the worldwide financial system, Hook told the Free Beacon. "There's about ten times that and we haven't seen a single case, a single filing of a complaint or report by UNIFIL", he added.

The IDF says it has been tracking Hezbollah's attack tunnels since 2014 and expects to find and destroy several more in a campaign that will last weeks to months. They told the IDF about it.

"The governments who are still in the [nuclear deal], yes, we have a disagreement over the efficacy of the Iran nuclear deal and we think it's a deficient deal that needs to be replaced by a new and better deal", Hook said.
