U.S. Report: Iran Spying on Israel Via Stations In Syria, Golan
Iran is spying on Israel via signals intelligence stations in northern Syria and the Golan Heights in cooperation with Hezbollah, according to a new report.
"Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security: A Profile," a joint report by the U.S. Department of Defense and Congress, says the two stations have been in operation since 2006.
"The technology at the two established SIGNIT stations indicates that Iranís capabilities are still limited, with little scope for high-level strategic intelligence gathering," according to the report, which adds that the intelligence stations appear to concentrate on supplying information to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Two additional SIGNIT stations were expected to be in operation in northern Syria in January 2007, according to the report, but there is no information leading experts to believe they are actually operating.
