State Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr has been ordered to investigate the alleged Israeli infiltration of Lebanon's internet through unlicensed networks.The state-run National News Agency reported that Saqr had tasked the intelligence directorate and the army's information division with investigating how and why unlicensed internet networks were set up in several of Lebanon's mountainous areas. Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri later in the day weighed in on the matter during his weekly meeting with lawmakers at his residence in Ain el-Tineh.He underscored that a detailed investigation of the internet network scandal should begin immediately.
