Hezbollah has warned against the recently installed Israeli spy devices along the border, urging the Lebanese government to act against the move.

Hezbollah bloc in the parliament was reacting to claims that the Israeli regime  had set up spying stations along the border with Lebanon, saying such actions violated Lebanon’s privacy.

“Available information about the suspicious activities of the Zionist enemy along the Blue Line indicate that there are modern electronic transmissions and spying devices installed atop towers placed at various points from the coast of Naqoura to the Kfar Shuba Hills,” the bloc said on Thursday.

Describing the devices as a national challenge and an insult, the Hezbollah MPs also said that the information gathered by the group indicate that the devices are “very sensitive and pose a danger to Lebanon's security and the privacy of Lebanese using their phones, internet or any means of communications.”

The Telecommunications Ministry confirmed on Wednesday that Israel had recently set up spying stations along the Blue Line before and after the 2006 war.

Israel also erected devices that were directed toward major mobile phone stations in Lebanon to wiretap phone conversations, the sources said.

The bloc asked for action on the governmental level and stressed the need to outline a plan in order to stop such a violation.

The bloc added that peace talks with Israel are futile and that the only viable choice is the resistance against it to achieve the ambitions of the Palestinians in liberating their land and ending the occupation.
