BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) – The Lebanese army says military intelligence has captured two members of a spying network allegedly working for Israel.

The army adds in a statement that advanced communication equipment and cameras were captured with the two, whose names were not made public.

The army said in its Saturday statement that the two confessed to gathering information about politicians and their parties.

It says they were captured in the eastern Bekaa Valley bordering Syria and where the militant Hezbollah group is known to be active.

Many people have previously been arrested in Lebanon on suspicion of spying for Israel. Lebanon considers itself at war with Israel and bans its citizens from having any contact with the Jewish state.
