Military releases footage of one of the border-crossing passages it uncovered in recent weeks, which peacekeepers say violate UN resolution.
The army on Tuesday said the Hezbollah terror group appeared to be trying to seal some of the attack tunnels it dug into Israeli territory from southern Lebanon, after several were uncovered by the military.
The Israel Defense Forces released video footage of one of the four tunnels it has so far exposed as part of its operation to find and destroy them.

Hamas and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah increased their inciting rhetoric in recent months, ahead of last week’s wave of terrorism in the West Bank, according to a new report by the Strategic Affairs Ministry.
The study found a sharp rise in calls by Hamas to attack Israelis in the West Bank in October and November. Last week, Palestinian terrorists killed three Israelis, including a three-day-old boy whose birth was induced after a Hamas member shot the baby’s pregnant mother, and injured several others.

Confusion reigns as Airbnb releases a statement saying that its settlement boycott “would not be implemented in practice,” but then appears to backtrack.

But then came an English-language press release from Airbnb’s HQ appearing to deny that the company had changed its mind. So what’s going on? Judging from the English statement, it appears that the only things stopping Airbnb from following through with its boycott are technical.
