    Either Hezbollah has had unprecedented success in uncovering all these Israeli spy rings or Hezbollah is desperate to deflect attention from the pending indictment in the Said Hariri murder case. Hezbollah claims that it uncovered an Israel’s infiltration of Lebanon’s phone system but when they made that claim they already knew that the phone calls between Hezbollah operatives were the main link tying them to Hariri’s murder, so they could use that to try to discredit their pending indictments. Now they keep uncovering alleged Israeli spy operations but they clearly need to divert public opinion from the UN’s investigation. Could be Hezbollah’s really been successful in uncovering Israeli intelligence operations or it could all be smoke and mirrors to get them off the hook for Harriri’s murder or a mixture of the 2. I suspect the former but we’ll never know.
