Lebanon army says dismantles Israeli spy device

BEIRUT - The Lebanese army said on Thursday it had uncovered and dismantled an Israeli surveillance camera near the southern port city of Tyre.
The army said the device had been discovered based on information passed to Lebanese intelligence by "resistance sources," a reference to Shi'ite terror group Hezbollah which maintains a stronghold in the south.
An army statement said the device, built to resemble a rock, was capable of monitoring a 15 km (10 mile) stretch of the southern coast from al-Bayyada to Tyre and could be operated using spy drones. Asked for comment, an IDF spokeswoman said she would check the report.
