Netanyahu asks diplomats for sanctions on Hezbollah

Netanyahu asks diplomats for sanctions on HezbollahPrime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took Israel-based diplomats to the border with Lebanon Thursday, showing them the site of a Hezbollah tunnel and calling for sanctions against the Shiite militant group. "I told the ambassadors that they should condemn this aggression by Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas, unequivocally, and of course also to intensify the sanctions against these elements," he said in a Hebrew-language statement. Israel announced on Tuesday that it had discovered Hezbollah tunnels infiltrating its territory from Lebanon and launched an operation to destroy them.
