Lebanon displays equipment Israel used to spy on Hezbollah

This from the BBC:

"Lebanon has reportedly broken a spy ring that was plotting to murder Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of militant group Hezbollah, on behalf of Israel.
Police have arrested a Palestinian woman who is accused of being recruited in Tunisia, the Safir daily reported.
Quoting "informed sources", the paper said the network had been uncovered by Lebanese security forces and Hezbollah.
The group was also planning to launch operations against Palestinian leaders based in Lebanon, Safir says.
Jamal Zaarura, who holds a Tunisian passport but was born in the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in northern Lebanon, is named as the ringleader.
Safir newspaper says an Egyptian man living in Beirut has also been arrested, along with a lover of Ms Zaarura's who she had unsuccessfully tried to bring into the ring.
She reportedly confessed that Mr Nasrallah was to be targeted with high explosives and poisonous chemicals installed in a tracksuit that would be slipped to his wardrobe."

Naharnet is claiming that at least 2 of the Mossad spies were responsible for surveying the Kfar Sousa neighborhood in Damascus a few months before Hizbullah Commander Imad Mughniyeh was assassinated by a car bomb last February.

Lebanese police officers display sophisticated devices Israel used to spy on Hezbollah, including a water cooler fitted with sensors to survey the landscape.
