BEIRUT — Lebanon's militant Hizbullah group said Friday that it discovered an Israeli device spying on its private telecommunications network.

The device exploded, apparently detonated remotely by the Israelis, when it was found near the village of Majdel Silim, about 8 kilometers (5 miles) from the border with Israel, Hezbollah said in a statement.

The Lebanese military also reported the find and the explosion, saying two people working in a truck nearby were injured in the blast. It too said in a statement the device was intended to spy on the network.

A spokesman for the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon had no comment, nor did Israeli officials.
