Israeli listening device uncovered in southern Lebanon – IDF remains on high alert

BREAKING: An Israeli listening device was uncovered in southern Lebanon, according to Lebanese reports.

The Hezbollah-affiliated al-Mayadeen television channel displayed a piece of equipment that is allegedly an IDF listening device found near Jezzine in southern Lebanon.

Tensions with the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group show no signs of easing after the IDF thwarted a Hezbollah terrorist attack last week when a cell of four Muslim terrorists advanced several meters into Israeli territory.

A non-stop IAF activity was reported over northern Israel, with Arab sources claiming 17 violations of Lebanese airspace over the last day.

Earlier today, the IDF denied an Al-Jazeera report claiming that Israel will not carry out a preemptive strike.

According to Al Jazeera, an IDF source said: “We are not looking for a confrontation with Hezbollah since our priority is to prevent Iran’s military establishment in Syria”.

“Preparedness on the border with Lebanon will continue as long as the situation requires it. We will respond forcefully to any attack by Hezbollah, Lebanese infrastructure will be among our targets,” the source added.

The IDF called up reservists, deployed additional Iron Dome batteries and pushed the largest reinforcements since the 2006 war to the border with Lebanon. Israel assumes that Nasrallah is determined to launch a significant attack, partly due to the economic situation in Lebanon.
