IDF Discovers Fourth Hezbollah Terror Tunnel

The Israeli military has uncovered a fourth Hezbollah terror tunnel leading into Israel from southern Lebanon. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the tunnel “an act of war” and “part of the Iranian web of aggression.”

  • During his weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Netanyahu said Hamas will pay a “heavy price” for last week’s terrorist attacks in the West Bank, in which two IDF soldiers and a newborn child were killed.
  • Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, once again took the U.N. to task for its anti-Israel bias, saying its bias is not a path to peace.
  • Australia has decided to recognize West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but stopped short of joining the U.S. in moving its embassy there from Tel Aviv.
  • Israeli nonprofit organization SpaceIL and Israel Aerospace Industries are set to launch a lunar spacecraft to the moon early next year, making Israel the third nation to successfully achieve a controlled-landing on the moon’s surface.
