Lebanon filed a complaint with the UN Security Council against Israel following the exposure of two Israeli spying devices on the Lebanese mountain tops at Jbeil Sannine, reported the foreign ministry in Beirut, reported Israel Radio.

The Lebanese Foreign Ministry said that the complaint claimed that Israel "planted two spying devices on Mount Barouk and Mount Sannine in order to gather and transmit information, and in order to serve as a means of communication between Israeli spies on Lebanese territory."

A Lebanese newspaper on Saturday reported that the spying devices found in the Lebanese mountaintops were not discovered earlier this week but in the past.

Pictures released this week of the mountaintops reportedly proved the newspaper's claim as they do not show the snow piled at the top of the mountains in the wake of a snow storm that hit Lebanon last week.

According to the a-Nahar newspaper, it could not be determined when the spying devices were planted in the Lebanese mountains.
