New spy ring? Several Hezbollah members, including senior group figures, were detained in recent days on suspicion of cooperating with Israel, a Lebanese news website reported Saturday.


According to the reports, one of the detainees is a relative of a "prominent" Hezbollah member while another was in charge of ties between Hezbollah, Iran and Syria.



According to a report in the Now Lebanon and other websites, yet another suspect is a "religious figure."


Hezbollah has not yet addressed the reports officially.


This is not the first report of spy rings being uncovered in Lebanon in the past year. However, in most cases the suspects were not Hezbollah members.


At the end of May, security officials in Beirut announced the detainment of a religious cleric known as a harsh critic of Hezbollah on suspicion of spying for Israel. At the time, Lebanese security officials said that their success in uncovering Israeli spy rings greatly weakened the Jewish state's ability to gather information in the country.
