Lebanon: Israel Using Balloons to Spy

The Lebanese Army accused Israel over the weekend of using balloons to gather intelligence on the country. The balloons allegedly contain high-powered cameras that are controlled remotely. Media reports said that the balloons were seen in Lebanese skies several days ago over several areas of south Lebanon.

A military expert told Arab media that shooting down the balloons would reveal the location of weapons caches, one of the pieces of information Israel is interested in.
