According to sources associated with Hezbollah, the installation was placed underground in close proximity to the local communications network and contains large battery cases. It also contains another device which transmits information through the air.
On Friday, it was reported that two people were injured after an explosion was heard in southern Lebanon towns.
Addressing reports on the incident, Hezbollah said in a statement that it "has thwarted an Israeli spy operation by uncovering a wireless device in a valley between the towns of Srifa and Deir Kifa."
The terror group claimed that after the device was exposed, "the Zionist enemy bombed it with a drone. No operative was hurt."
A week ago, Lebanese media outlets said that a massive explosion rocked a Hezbollah stronghold near the town of Siddiqin in southern Lebanon. The blast was alleged to have occurred at a secret Hezbollah arms cache. The organization closed the area off to local security forces.
