Lebanon army discovers another Israeli spying device
December 27, 2010
Lebanon army intelligence says it has discovered and dismantled another Israeli spying devices in Toumat Niha , in the Shouf region east of Beirut , according to local reports .
Local reports revealed that the Toumat Niha device allow Israel to monitor the Bekaa valley and coastal areas from Sidon all the way to Jbeil.
This comes after Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed a complaint against Israel to the UN Security Council through its permanent mission at the UN over Israeli spying devices that were discovered earlier in December by the Lebanese army on Mount Sannine in the upper Metn region and Barouk Mountain in the Shouf region.
“Such Israeli action is considered a violation of Lebanese sovereignty and UN Security Council Resolution 1701. It also threatens international security and peace, represents a violent action against Lebanese territories, and shows, once again, Israel’s disrespect of UN decisions,” National News Agency (NNA) reported the complaint as stating on December 19.
The UN resolution ended the 2006 war between Hezbollah and Israel which killed over 1,200 Lebanese people , mostly civilians.
Israeli espionage “is in clear violation of resolution 1701,” Lebanese President Michel Suleiman said earlier in December.
