Israel Defense Forces detonated two Hizbullah bunkers along Israel’s border with Lebanon Friday Morning.


The bunkers, which were uncovered on the Israeli side of the security fence, were apparently used by the Lebanese terror group to monitor soldiers operating in the area, this according to Lieutenant Colonel Eran Faucker, commander of the Engineering Corps’ 603rd Battalion.


Faucker said the bunkers were located some 300 meters (984 feet) north of the border in an area that remains under the IDF’s control, which, according to him, is indicative of Hizbullah’s close proximity to Israel.


The bunkers contained food and digging tools used by Hizbullah terrorists before the war; Faucker said there may be additional Hizbullah outposts in the area.


A number of weeks ago IDF soldiers uncovered weapons and additional military equipment that the army believes belong to the Hizbullah cell that kidnapped Israeli soldiers Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser six months ago.
