Netanyahu Admits to Conducting Airstrikes in Syria

"Just in the past 36 hours, the air force attacked Iranian depots full of Iranian weapons in the Damascus International Airport", Netanyahu said, speaking at the weekly cabinet meeting in his Jerusalem office, as cited by The Times of Israel. "The bulk of recent attacks show how we are more committed than ever to act against Iran in Syria, as we promised".

"We have achieved the goal (to expose and destroy the tunnels from Lebanon) which we set out to achieve at the beginning", Conricus said.

On Tuesday, Eisenkot will be replace by Maj. "We will continue to monitor all activity by Hezbollah, and by Iran and its proxies".

Eisenkot told the New York Times on Friday that "we struck thousands of targets without claiming responsibility or asking for credit".

A far more visible part of his legacy has been the recent Lebanese border operation, which the military said thwarted Hezbollah's prime strategic investment for its next potential war.

It reached a few dozen metres into Israel, and at 55 metres under the ground was the deepest as well as "the longest and most detailed" of all the tunnels the army exposed, Conricus said.

He claimed the tunnel included stairs, a rail system, and a passageway to allow equipment and forces through.

"According to our intelligence, there are no longer any cross-border attack tunnels into Israel".

With the sixth Hezbollah tunnel discovered Saturday afternoon, Israel declared victory and announced the completion of Operation Northern Shield on Sunday.

Hezbollah has not commented on the tunnels, the existence of several of which was confirmed by United Nations peacekeepers in Lebanon.

In the wake of its discoveries, Israel has asked the worldwide community to impose tough sanctions on Hezbollah and begin to act against its state-within-a-state operation in Lebanon.

The powerful Shiite militant Hezbollah, which acts independently in Lebanon, has yet to comment on the Israeli discoveries. It said the Iranian-backed organization Hezbollah dug.

In the past days, Eisenkot gave a series of interviews with both Israeli and foreign media, warning Iran against entrenching itself militarily in Syria.

A month-long war in 2006 between Israel and Hezbollah killed more than 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and more than 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
