Hezbollah claims Israel hacked Lebanon’s CCTV

Hezbollah has accused Israel of hacking into CCTV cameras positioned outside residences and businesses in southern Lebanon. The Iran-backed militant group alleges that Israel utilized the footage to target its fighters.

In response, Hezbollah has called on residents to disconnect these cameras from the internet to prevent further surveillance.

The ongoing tensions between Israel and Hezbollah along the Israel-Lebanon border have led to increased exchanges of fire, primarily involving the Israeli military and Hezbollah.

These hostilities escalated after the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war on October 7, raising concerns about a broader conflict in the region.


Hezbollah claims that Israel hacked into the camera systems to gain visibility, especially after the group’s cross-border attacks had reportedly targeted many of the cameras Israel had installed near the border.

A statement from Hezbollah asserted, “The enemy has recently hacked into civilian cameras connected to the internet and installed in front of homes, shops, and institutions in frontline villages.”

Since the beginning of the cross-border hostilities, over 150 people have been killed on the Lebanese side, with most being Hezbollah fighters.

Additionally, more than 20 civilians, including three journalists, have lost their lives. On the Israeli side, at least four civilians and nine soldiers have been reported dead.

While the exchanges of fire have primarily occurred along the border, Israel has conducted limited strikes deeper into Lebanese territory. Israel has issued warnings that it will intensify military actions unless Hezbollah militants withdraw further from the border.

The context of these events includes Israel’s vow to destroy Hamas in retaliation for the October 7 attack, which resulted in the deaths of approximately 1,140 people, mostly civilians, according to an AFP tally based on Israeli figures.

Israel’s sustained aerial bombardment and ground invasion in Gaza, controlled by Hamas, have reportedly led to the deaths of at least 21,320 people, primarily women and children, according to Gaza’s health ministry run by Hamas.
