According to the IDF, the tunnel, originating in the southern Lebanese town of Ramiyah, was 260 feet deep—equivalent to a 22-story building—more than 3,000 feet long and extended nearly 250 feet into Israel. It featured air-conditioning, phone lines, rail tracks and staging grounds for cross-border invasions.

The IDF launched its operation in December to discover and eliminate tunnel systems that Hezbollah could use to infiltrate and attack the Jewish state.
