Israel's challenges from its northern frontier

While Israel seemed to be largely concerned by events in Syria, where enemies such as Iran, the Islamic State and Hezbollah have been operating with the civil war as a backdrop, it turns out that the Lebanese border has also been a hub of activity, mostly hidden from view. Earlier this month Israel mounted an ambitious engineering project, dubbed “Operation Northern Shield”, to expose and destroy cross-border attack tunnels dug by Hezbollah.
