Israel and Hizbullah's Technology Duel

Israel and Hizbullah are locked in a shadowy technological duel, the Beirut Daily Star reports.

Israel has reportedly made extensive use of reconnaissance flights using unmanned ariel vehicles, or drones, wire taps, GPS devices planted in Hizbullah vehicles, and hidden surveillance devices incorporating long-range cameras which transmit data via short-burst transmissions to gather intelligence on the Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror organization, whose internal security have a formidable reputation for rooting out would-be infiltrators.
