Suleiman Praises Army for Uncovering Spy System: Discovery Exposes Israeli Violations against Lebanon


President Michel Suleiman congratulated on Friday the Lebanese army for uncovering the Israeli spy system in the southern town of Shamaa on Thursday.

He said: “The discovery once again exposes Israel’s ongoing violation of U.N. Security Council resolution 1701 and Lebanon’s sovereignty before the international community.”

The army command announced on Thursday that it has dismantled an Israeli spy and surveillance system in Shamaa.

The army made the discovery after being tipped off by the Resistance.

The sophisticated system covers the southern coastal region from al-Bayyada to Tyre and is activated by surveillance planes that directly take photographs from the system.
