Lebanon arrests suspected Israeli spies

The Lebanese security forces arrest nine people suspected of spying for Israel, the country's army has said in an official statement.


The statement said the nine suspected spies were detained over the past two months, a Press TV correspondent reported on Monday.

The interrogation process with four of the suspected spies has been completed and they have been transferred to the judicial authorities, the statement said.

The remaining five are still being interrogated by the army, it added.

Lebanon has stepped up efforts to disband the spy groups working for the Israeli spy agency, Mossad.

More than 100 people have been arrested on suspicion of spying for Mossad since April 2009, including members of the country's security forces and telecommunications personnel.
