Lebanese military intelligence have arrested a man accused of spying for Israel in the country over the past 35 years, the Lebanon Now news portal said Wednesday, citing a report from Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar television.

The alleged spy was identified as Elias Younes, a retired employee of the Ogero telecommunications company.

Al-Manar refered to Younes as "the dean of all collaborators" because of his alleged decades-long collaboration with Israel.

“[Younes] supplied the enemy with details regarding marine security and gave them information related to the Telecommunications Ministry,” Al-Manar reported, according to Now Lebanon.
