DEBKAfile's Western intelligence sources in Lebanon refuted the Hizballah al Manar TV claim that an Israeli jet blew up a spy device located on a Hizballah telecommunications cable laid by Iranian experts between the southern towns of Zrariyeh and Tayr Filsay in the region of the Litani River. It was blown by a self-detonating device operated by remote control, they said, although they allowed that it could have been the work of an Israeli drone operating from Israeli air space or out at sea. No comment has come from Israel.
The sources said the cable linked the device to Hizballah's southern district headquarters at Maaroub near Tyre. The militiamen who regularly inspect the device checked on an object apparently attached to the section buried one meter underground.
