Israël vernietigt Hezbollah-tunnels

December 5, 2018 -- Het Israëlische leger vernietigt grenstunnels, gebouwd door Hezbollah, die vanuit Libanon in Israël uitkomen. Israël bouwt ook een 130 km lange
grensmuur van de Middellandse Zee tot de berg Hermon in het oosten.

In a pre-dawn operation on December 4 the army discovered a 200-metre tunnel that stretched from the Lebanese village of Kafr Kela across the border and exited in farmland southwest of the Israeli border town of Metula. The shaft, cut through solid rock some 24 metres below ground level, was outfitted with electricity, ventilation pipes and communications, and extended 40 metres into Israel.

Metula residents told Israeli media they had been hearing digging noises and voices from beneath their homes for years and had reported their suspicions to the military.

The construction of the tunnels is a violation of UN Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 Second Lebanon War.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
