Lebanese General security announced on Sunday that it arrested three people for spying for the Israeli army.

A G.S. statement said that R.A., a Syrian national, his Lebanese wife S.Sh., and H.M., another Lebanese national, admitted to gathering information on specific security officials in Lebanon, while taking pictures and videos of “sensitive” areas in the south and sending them to the Israeli army.

The statement did not say where or when the individuals were arrested.

The three suspected spies were referred to the relevant judiciary after completing investigations with the Military Prosecution, as security forces continued to search for other individuals believed to be a part of the same espionage network.

Several Israeli spy networks have been uncovered in the country's south, where the army has dismantled or destroyed spying devices found.
