The Lebanese Army, after a tip from Hezbullah militants, believes a spy device found near Beirut is Israeli
The Lebanese Army said Wednesday it had uncovered two Israeli spy installations in mountainous areas near Beirut and the Bekaa Valley — one on Sannine mountain and another on Barouk mountain.
How did they know it was from Israel?
The photos released Thursday show a device bearing the words “mini cloud” in Hebrew, along with the name of the manufacturer – “Beam Systems Israel Ltd.” – in English.
Oh, did it also have a business card taped on the outside? Seriously, though, if someone were to take the trouble of making a covert network listening device with extended range and battery life, why would they leave obvious signs of origin? It would be one thing to catch Israel in the act of spying, by altering the device and monitoring its outbound or uplink connections. Pointing to a label on a rock in the desert seems incredibly low-tech and offers little more than a clue.
