Valentine’s Day, an occasion to celebrate romantic feelings for significant others or anyone you might take a fancy to, appears to touch almost every heart on Earth. However, there may be various types of strong feelings and different species of significant others.
The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on Sunday offered a sweet option for those who need a “last-minute” Valentine’s card, “winking” to Tel Aviv’s long-time adversary, Hezbollah, and its current secretary general, Hassan Nasrallah.
The memeficated ‘Valentine card’ featuring Nasrallah offers a greeting pun: “are you a tunnel? cause I’m digging you”, in an apparent reference to cross-border subterranean passages into Israel created by Hezbollah.
In 2018, Israel launched Operation Northern Shield, aimed at locating and destroying tunnels dug into northern parts of Israel from southern Lebanon, believed by Tel Aviv to be facilities for transporting militants and weapons into the Jewish state.
