Vast Communication Network Seized in Lebanon


The Lebanese Telecommunications Minister, Boutros Harb, has announced the seizure of vast and very sophisticated secret installations, says L’Orient-Le-Jour.

He presented photos showing the seized equipment, including telecommunication towers, 3-meter satellite dishes, receivers and other major facilities.

The network covered the whole territory. It seems to have been installed by a foreign power to escape state supervision. It was a very serious threat to the security of Lebanon.

It seems that the originator is Israel, but French and Turkish Cypriot personalities are involved. Hagop Andranik and Imad Lahoud are accused of having installed a network of optical cables to connect the different stations. The Justice Ministry and the army have opened Investigations.
