Lebanese security forces detained three people on suspicion of spying for Israel, the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar television network reported on Sunday.

According to the Lebanese security forces, a Syrian man, his Lebanese wife and another Lebanese national admitted to taking photos and filming videos of sensitive areas in southern Lebanon, as well gathering information on security personnel, passing on the information to the IDF.

The date and location of their arrest remain unknown.

Lebanese security forces are continuing in their search for others believed to be involved in the same spy network, Al-Manar reported, adding that "several Israeli spy networks have been uncovered in the country's south."
