According to the prime minister, Israel has attacked Iranian weapons depots at the Damascus International Airport in Syria.

Israel said today it had completed a search for Hezbollah tunnels from Lebanon after uncovering at least six of the passages dug secretly under the border by the Iranian-backed guerrillas.

He praised the IDF chief's work against the manufacture of precision weapons in Lebanon, dismantling Hezbollah's attack tunnels during Operation Northern Shield, action against Hamas on the Gaza border and in thwarting hundreds of terrorist attacks in the West Bank.

However, Israel's outgoing military chief of staff Lieutenant-General Gadi Eisenkot revealed in a recent New York Times interview that Israel had "struck thousands of targets without claiming responsibility or asking for credit".

We worked with impressive success to block Iran's military entrenchment in Syria.

Lt Col Conricus said the sixth tunnel started in the border town of Ramyeh and was 55m (180ft) deep and 800m (2600ft) long.

After previously reporting the discovery of five tunnels, the Israeli military said another had been found yesterday, 55 metres deep and reaching "a few tens of metres" into Israel from a point 800 metres within Lebanon. In tandem we'll seize a number of locations in Lebanese territory from which Hezbollah digs tunnels that have not yet crossed into Israel.

It is believed the tunnels were allowing militants to sneak across the border and carry out attacks. Conricus said the United Nations peacekeeping mission, known as UNIFIL, was updated on the latest development.

Neither Lebanon nor Hezbollah has commented directly on the end of the operation.

Israel says Iran is seeking to establish a military presence in Syria that could threaten Israeli security by trying to transfer advanced weaponry to the Hezbollah terror group in Lebanon.

Israel has called on the global community to impose tough sanctions on Hezbollah and act against the state within a state operation in Lebanon.

Israel has long called for a crackdown on the Iran-backed Hezbollah, a heavily armed mini-army that is believed to possess an arsenal of some 150,000 rockets that can reach almost all of Israel.

A month-long war in 2006 between Israel and Hezbollah killed more than 1,200 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and more than 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
