Israel has remotely detonated two of its spying devices in southern Lebanon after they were discovered by the Hezbollah resistance movement.
At least two Lebanese were injured after the espionage devises were detonated remotely in Wadi al-Qaysiyya outside of Majdal Selem near the southern coastal city of Tyre on Friday.
“Telecom technicians of the resistance (Hezbollah) managed to discover a spying device the enemy had planted in Wadi al-Qaysiyya. The enemy detonated its devices as a result of the discovery,” said a statement released by the Hezbollah media relations department.
“This technical espionage by the enemy is part of the persistent Israeli violations of the national telecom network with the aim of infiltrating and controlling it, which represents a breach of sovereignty and an attempt at violating the security and safety of the Lebanese,” the statement added.
No other details were immediately available.
Friday’s incident came just two days after Israeli troops opened fire on Lebanon from two border posts near Shebaa Farms.
