Lebanon’s security service said in a statement on Sunday a Lebanese man plus a Syrian man and his Lebanese wife had been detained over espionage activities.
“In the framework of pursuing operations to combat terrorism and espionage… the directorate of General Security arrested a spy network working for the Israeli enemy in the south (of Lebanon),” the statement said.
The statement did not provide any information about how and when the three were arrested, but said the detainees had admitted to spying, Press TV reported.
The statement also noted that the three had been gathering information on strategic roads and other areas in south Lebanon to be sent to “their employers to be used in later attacks.”
The Tel Aviv regime launched an intelligence war against Hezbollah following its defeat in the two wars on Lebanon.
Israel also violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis through sending reconnaissance drones, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
