The bunkers were located by IDF Special Forces within Israeli territory, some 400 meters east of the IDF’s Biranit outpost which is located between the border fence and the international border.
Both housed supplies that would enable terrorists to stay underground for a long period of time, such as food and various tools. It appeared they had been used by Hizbullah terrorists during the war.
Two weeks ago, IDF forces found five cases very close to the kidnapping site: three RPG shoulder-launched missiles, a ten-kilogram MAG machine gun, five bullet casings of Lau missiles, shoes, and fence-cutting equipment.
The cache was discovered during a routine patrol near Moshav Zar’it on the Lebanese border. Senior officers hurried to the scene to examine the items.
It is believed that the items were left behind by the terrorists who kidnapped IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in a cross-border attack last July. The abduction, together with a simultaneous attack by the Hizbullah terrorists touched off the 34-day Lebanon War.
