The Israeli military has reportedly launched an air balloon with surveillance cameras from one of its military positions over a village in Lebanon’s Southern Province of Nabatieh in light of a recent operation Zionist regime has undertaken to block what it claims are tunnels Hezbollah resistance movement has dug into Occupied Territories.
Lebanon’s official National News Agency (NNA) reported on Wednesday that Israeli forces flew the balloon over Meiss Ej Jabal village in the Marjeyoun district of the province.
The report added that Israeli troops have also installed a surveillance camera on the outskirts of Kafar Kila village near the cement separation wall between Lebanon and Occupied Lands.
Local sources, requesting not to be named, said the camera was pointed at Lebanese territories.
Meanwhile, Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri says the Israeli regime has failed to provide any evidence for alleged tunnels dug from Lebanon into Occupied Territories by Hezbollah resistance fighters.
“The Israelis did not present any information” at the meeting with the Lebanese Army and the UNIFIL peacekeeping force, a statement from Berri’s office said.
Berri further noted that Lebanon had asked for geographic coordinates but received none.
“This (Israeli accusation) is not based on any real facts at all,” Ali Bazzi, a lawmaker from Berri’s Amal Movement cited him as saying after a meeting.
Furthermore, Lebanon’s Foreign Ministry is going to submit a complaint to the United Nations about “repeated Israeli violations,” according to a report published by NNA.
The developments came only a day after the Israeli military announced an operation against what it said were Hezbollah infiltration tunnels.
