A highly camouflaged Israeli espionage device has been discovered in southern Lebanon, the country’s army says.
“An army force discovered an Israeli spy device in a rock connected to an electric cable. A military expert arrived at the scene and dismantled the device,” the Lebanese Army Command’s General Directorate said in a statement released on Wednesday, adding that the Lebanese army has initiated an investigation into the issue.
It is not the first time fake rocks in Lebanon turn out to be Israeli spying devices. Back in December 2010, the Lebanese army reported that it had discovered and dismantled sophisticated Israeli-made surveillance devices, similarly camouflaged, in the mountains of Sannine and Barouk, north and south of the capital Beirut.
