Lebanon to sue Israel at UNSC over spying: MP

A senior Lebanese lawmaker says the country will file a lawsuit with the UN Security Council over recent discovery of Israel’s spying stations along Lebanon’s southern border.

The Parliament’s Media and Telecommunications Committee held a meeting on Monday following reports that Israel had installed spying posts along the border with capability to monitor the whole country.

“We agreed on the following: First, filing a complaint with the Security Council and sending a memo to international organizations and demanding that Israel be expelled from the International Telecommunications Union,” Hasan Fadlallah, the head of the committee, said after the meeting.

“The committee listened to a detailed explanation from a ministerial committee that the government had formed in July 2013 and given a period of few months to complete a study on Israeli aggressions,” added Fadlallah, who belongs to the parliamentary bloc of the Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah.

On November 6, Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri revealed that the Tel Aviv regime had installed spying devices “starting from al-Naqoura passing by Khiyam all the way to Shebaa.”

Israel’s espionage activities violate Resolution 1701 of the UN Security Council that ended Israel’s 2006 war with Lebanon, the lawmaker added.

Lebanon’s Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour said in an interview with Press TV last week that the “Israeli enemy has stationed very sophisticated espionage devices that enable Tel Aviv to tap into both wired and wireless communication networks.”

Israel also violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.
