Lebanon has filed a complaint with the United Nations over Israeli spy devices planted in Lebanese territory, a Lebanese security source told Beirut's the Daily Star Saturday.

According to the source, espionage equipment was discovered near the towns of Deir Kifa and Srifa, both in southern Lebanon.

Lebanon called the discovery of Israeli spy work "a flagrant violation of Lebanese sovereignty, international law [and UN] resolution 1701," which ended hostilities between Lebanon and Israel in 2006.

The complaint of spy devices was issued two weeks after Hezbollah claimed on its Al Manar satellite channel that it had discovered Israeli espionage devices crafted to disrupt Lebanese telecommunications.
