BERUT: Hezbollah would not comment on a local newspaper report Wednesday that said the resistance party has detained three men, including two members of Hezbollah, for spying for Israel.
“I have no information regarding this issue,” Hezbollah spokesperson Ibrahim Musawi told The Daily Star Wednesday.
An-Nahar daily said Hezbollah’s security apparatus detained two Hezbollah members and a member of a Bekaa village municipal council on the suspicion that they have been collaborating with Israel.
It said the men were detained five days ago.
Earlier this month, An-Nahar said Hezbollah had uncovered a Beirut-based spy network entrusted with gathering information on the resistance party for an unnamed Western country.
In its July 9 report, An-Nahar said the spy network comprised three men and was based in Beirut’s southern suburbs, known as a Hezbollah stronghold.
