A large Lebanese army force which raided the Lebanese Internet network center on Mt. Barukh east of the Lebanese town of Jezzine Saturday, Aug. 8 was dismayed to discover the exchange center which carries all of Lebanon’s Internet links using equipment made in Israel. An intelligence sweep found the servers were routed to an exchange center in Haifa.
The soldiers impounded piles of equipment and rounded up several detainees at the mountain center and several Lebanese Internet companies.
Upon learning of the discovery, Hizballah demanded an immediate and thorough investigation of how all of Israeli intelligence acquired free access to all Lebanese internet communications like an open book.
This is quite impressive, especially considering Israel and Lebanon have no official diplomatic relations. As such, no official trade exists between the two countries.
