Lebanese security services in recent days arrested three men who were allegedly spying for Israel, a local newspaper reported Saturday.
There has been no independent confirmation of the newspaper’s claims.
Israeli military assessments last month said Tehran is working tirelessly to outfit the terrorist group with more accurate missiles for a future war with Israel.
The army also believes that Iran will continue with its efforts to establish a presence in Syria through proxies, with which it can support Hezbollah and potentially open a second Syrian front against Israel.
In August the United Nations extended the mandate of its peacekeeping mission in southern Lebanon and gave its forces widened powers to address Hezbollah’s weapons buildup in the area.
The resolution highlights that UNIFIL has the authority to “take all necessary actions” in areas where its forces are deployed and must ensure that its area of operations is “not utilized for hostile activities of any kind.”
Israel has accused the international body of failing to prevent arms from being smuggled to Hezbollah.
