Syria Detects Israeli Spying Devices on Coast

Syria said it had detected Israeli spying devices planted at certain point on the Syrian coast, the state-run SANA news agency said Wednesday.

Syrian authorities have recently detected Israeli espionage devices at the Syrian coast, the report said, citing an official source as saying that the devices' functions include tapping, imaging and recording.

The report, however, stopped short of spelling information about the exact location of the devices and the time of their discovery.

Last month, Israeli war jets sneaked off radars and hit a center for scientific research in a suburb of Syrian capital Damascus. Western media said that the airstrike also hit another target: a convoy that was believed to be carrying weaponries to the Lebanese Hezbollah militant group, a staunch ally to Syria.

Syria has technically been in a state of war with Israel since its creation in 1948. Their enmity has risen with the Syrian administration rendering support to the Hezbollah.
