Lebanon will file a complaint against Israel at the United Nations Security Council, saying its actions on their shared border were a prelude to an Israeli attack, a statement from the Lebanese Foreign Ministry said Thursday.The Israeli army announced Thursday that it had expanded its operations to three areas along its border with Lebanon where it says it discovered Hezbollah "attack tunnels," and that it was aware of even more.Gen. Stefano Del Col visited the site of one of the alleged Hezbollah tunnels that Israel announced it had discovered Tuesday, the day it launched "Operation Northern Shield" to block them.Del Col can be seen in a photo released by the Israel army peering into a hole in the ground at the alleged tunnel site, surrounded by Israeli security forces.InMany in Lebanon have responded to the Israeli operation with humor.On social media, memes mocking the Israeli operation circulated, including an image of Lebanese people smoking nargileh in a "Hezbollah tunnel," an imagined traffic dispute between Israeli settlers and Lebanese over who had right of way inside a tunnel, and a joint Hamas-Hezbollah celebration of the opening of a tunnel connecting southern Lebanon with the Gaza Strip.
