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.
