A senior Lebanese army officer on Wednesday said military experts have discovered two spy cameras planted by Israel in Lebanon's mountains.

 

Earlier this month, the Lebanese appealed to the United Nations Security Council, claiming Israel planted spying equipment at the south of the country.

The officer claimed the long range spying systems were placed in Sanin mountain and the Barouk mountains, which overlook the capital of Beirut.

 

The officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said Wednesday that army experts dismantled one of the systems and are working on the second.

 

He said the army received information about the systems from the militant Hezbollah group – whose members are expected to be indicted on the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.

 

According to the report, the equipment included a system that can record and send signals as well as take footage, and can be operated from afar. The Lebanese official said the spying system was planted in an isolated area with dry rocks, which made it harder to uncover.

Earlier this month, Hezbollah said it discovered an Israeli device spying on its private telecommunications network.

 

More than 100 people in Lebanon have been arrested since last year on suspicion of collaborating with Israel.

 

Last week, WikiLeaks published diplomatic cables revealing that Lebanese authorities were surprised to discover that not only Israel is syping on them.

 

In February 2008, the army uncovered a secret Iranian communications network across the country.

 

The discovery sparked tensions between the central government and Hezbollah, which culminated in public clashes on the streets of the capital.
