BEIRUT: Hezbollah MP Nawar Sahli said Tuesday the so-called intelligence war with Israel and the CIA is ongoing.
“The intelligence, security and technological war is ongoing with Israel and America,” Sahli told OTV television channel.
“We have our tools and we are watching their movement,” Sahli said.
He said the U.S. Administration “panicked” after Hezbollah exposed CIA operatives in Lebanon.
In June, Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah boasted that the party had identified at least two spies working for the CIA. The party’s leader has dubbed the U.S. Embassy in Beirut a “den of spies.”
Hezbollah made the names public in a broadcast Friday night on Al-Manar television station.
Sahli urged Lebanese officials to keep the “spy” issue out of political bickering “because it is related to Lebanon’s national security.”
“Anyone who criticizes this subject in a negative way would be encouraging spying,” Sahli said.
He said “part two” of the intelligence war would be announced in a timely manner.
