Head of IDF International Media Branch Briefs Israel Bonds on Operation Northern Shield

On December 6, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, head of the IDF’s International Media Branch, provided a detailed briefing for Israel Bonds leadership and staff on Operation Northern Shield, an intensive army effort to uncover and destroy Hezbollah attack tunnels extending from Lebanon into Israel. At the time of the briefing, two tunnels had been uncovered.

In his briefing, Lt. Col. Conricus termed the tunnels “a violation of Israeli sovereignty and UN Resolution 1701.” He added that the IDF had been secretly collecting information on the tunnels for the past 4 ½ years, and declared that Operation Northern Shield sends a clear message to Hezbollah.

In opening the briefing, Bonds President & CEO Israel Maimon, a veteran of the elite Golani Brigade, noted his son Jonathan is also a Golani soldier and is currently stationed in Metula – the closest Israeli town to Lebanon –  as support for Operation Northern Shield.
