Lebanese media is reporting that an Israeli Air Force jet attacked a target in Lebanon on Monday, however the target was a device allegedly being used by Israeli intelligence.

“LBC television station reported on Monday that an Israeli jet detonated a spying device near the southern town of Zrariyeh,” writes Now Lebanon.

The terrorist group Hezbollah, which operates out of Lebanon, says an Israeli plane detonated “an explosive device on Hezbollah’s [telecommunications] line.”

“The device was reportedly planted to eavesdrop on Hezbollah’s telecommunications network,” Israel’s Channel 2 News reported on Monday.
