New Israeli Psychological War: Phone Calls Promising Rewards in Exchange for Recruiting Spiesإقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية
Israel has adopted a new form of psychological warfare on Lebanon through telephoning a number of southern residents on their mobile phones and informing them that they have won a financial reward from a Saudi bank.
Israeli security sources added that the residents are then asked to call a number, 4382094678, to receive their reward.
A security source told the Central News Agency on Monday that this number does not exist in any Arab state, but it belongs to a foreign country.
The Israeli Mossad is behind the operation aimed at recruiting Israeli spies through financial rewards, it added.
Linking the reward to a Saudi bank, said the source, is aimed at dragging the Kingdom in matters that don’t concern it.
It warned the citizens against telephoning the number to avoid falling in a trap set up by Israeli intelligence.
It said that these tactics had been employed in the past when Israel had telephoned Lebanese citizens promising them with $10 million in exchange for information on kidnapped Israeli soldiers, but no one fell for the trap.
“These tactics are aimed at infiltrating the local Lebanese scene especially after Hizbullah Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah recently announced that the party had discovered spies working for Israel within it ranks,” stated the security source.
“Lebanon is following up on the Israeli threats politically through contacting the countries participating in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon in order to pressure Israel and prevent it from launching an assault on the South,” it revealed.
