Beirut, 07 Jul 09, 07:45

Parachute-like objects lit up the sky above southern Lebanon overnight in what appeared to be a new Israeli spy method.

Security reports said a "shining object" resembling a gas cylinder fell over the southern village of Nmaireh around 10:30pm Monday and another over Zafta in the Nabatiyeh province.

Security forces rushed to the scene and went straight into on a fact-finding mission to find out the truth about these objects.

The daily An-Nahar on Tuesday described the parachute-like objects as a "new kind of Israeli espionage war on Lebanon."

It said Israel has been recently dropping these objects over the mountainous terrain of southern Lebanon and near residential houses.

Al-Akhbar newspaper, however, quoted local sources as saying the object over Zafta was likely a meteor that fell from the sky or an Israeli parachute or even a spy device.

But security sources said the object could be an "explosive arrow" that was shot from a nearby location.
