Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, said that Israel must stop its “intolerable” attacks in Syria.

In his first public comments since Israel announced the discovery of the tunnels in November, Nasrallah told Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV station that one of the tunnels discovered by Israel is more than 13 years old, predating UN Security Council Resolution 1701, passed after the Second Lebanon War.

Israel alleges Hezbollah had planned to use the tunnels to kidnap or kill its civilians or soldiers, and to seize a slice of Israeli territory in the event of any hostilities.

Lebanon and Israel are technically still at war, but the border has remained relatively calm in recent years.

Hezbollah is the only movement to refuse to give up its weapons after Lebanon’s civil war between 1975 and 1990
