BEIRUT (Reuters) – Lebanon's Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri said Israel had provided no evidence to back up its assertion that tunnels ended up being dug across their shared border.

Israel accused Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah movement of digging cross-border attack tunnels and launched a procedure on Tuesday to "expose and thwart" them.

"The Israelis wouldn’t present any information," at the selecting the Lebanese army and U.N. peacekeepers, a press release from Berri's office said.
