Israel installed a new spying station in Mount Hermon (Jabal al-Sheikh), near the border with Lebanon, As Safir newspaper reported on Wednesday.

According to the newspaper, the espionage station includes advanced equipment that enable Israel to monitor Hasbaya, Arqoub, Rashaya, the Bekaa and several areas in eastern Lebanon mountain range.

Syria's Mount Hermon, near the border with Lebanon, is occupied by Israel.

The newspaper reported that installing the spying station lasted several hours on Tuesday and was accompanied by a drone.

Israel's recent installation of spying stations along its border with Lebanon angered several politicians as the parliamentary telecommunications committee vowed to confront the matter.

Several media reports said that Lebanon is expected to file a complaint to the United Nations Security Council over the issue.

Earlier in November, Speaker Nabih Berri revealed that Israel had set up a number of espionage stations along its border with Lebanon, starting from al-Naqoura passing by Khayyam all the way to Sheba.

The biggest espionage station is allegedly erected in al-Abbad and Jan al-Alam areas, which are located near the UN demarcated Blue line.
