"Iran is building a communications network for Hizbullah to protect from being tapped," Lebanese Communications Minister Marwan Hamada claimed on Sunday, according to Israeli reports.

In an interview with the London-based al-sharq al-Awsat newspaper, Hamada claimed that the Iranian organization aiding Hizbullah in restoring its infrastructures after the war is also building a communications network with separate landlines that span most of Lebanon and would enable Hizbullah to listen to any entity within Lebanon.

Minister Hamada also said that he intends to discuss the matter in the next government meeting, and that Lebanon may address the Arab League and the UN Security Council on the matter.

Hamada said "the resistance's security is a top priority, but we cannot jeopardize Lebanon and its citizens either."
