Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora called the "Israeli spying devices" discovered in southern Lebanon a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended the Second Lebanon War, Israel Radio reported on Sunday night. Earlier, Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV station reported that a blast that rocked the Wadi Houla area in southern Lebanon on Saturday was caused by the detonation of three "spying devices" that Israel had planted in the area. According to Israel Radio, UNIFIL, the UN peace-keeping force in Lebanon, filed a complaint with the IDF over what it called "violations by the Israel Air Force in the southern Lebanese skies." UNIFIL spokeswoman Yasmina Bouziane was quoted as claiming that during the investigation in Wadi Houla, IAF unmanned aerial vehicles were making sorties above the area and violating Lebanon's sovereignty.
