Suspicious Israeli Devices Planted in Southern Lebanon
By Nabil Al-Mulhem
Lebanese security men have discovered a depot of Israeli-made weapons and ammunition in the southern Lebanese town of Ibel El Saqi.
Lebanese sources told Albawaba.com that the discovery of the depot has raised questions as to whether the cache is linked to information received by the Lebanese security which indicates that the Israeli intelligence agency has prepared plans for wide scale sabotage operations in Lebanon.
Lebanese security sources said they found military equipment in the depot that included sophisticated bugging devices as well as chemicals produced by the RCN company.
RCN is registered in the name of Ramzi Saeed Nahra who disclaimed any connection with the depot, saying a man named Mufeed Nahra, whose whereabouts is unknown, is responsible for the company.
Officials in the Lebanese Hizbollah group had earlier warned that secret Israeli cells which are thought to exist in parts of southern Lebanon could be activated at any time to incite troubles in Lebanon when, for example, delicate matters are being negotiated.
