No smoking gun in Lebanon's Hariri murder case ... 7-14-25-51

Media reports last year suggested that the Hariri case would hinge on telephone records, and [Hezbollah leader Hassan] Nasrallah has worked to cast doubt on the security of the system.

Lebanese officials have confirmed that Israel has penetrated Lebanon's telecommunications networks and has great control over them. In 2010, authorities detained two senior employees of one of the country's two cellular telecommunication companies on suspicion of spying for Israel.

The telecommunications minister at the time confirmed that Israel was able to infiltrate Lebanon's mobile telecommunications network and could manipulate phone calls and short messages.

Nasrallah has said Israel bugged the mobile phones of Hezbollah members, allowing it to make false phone calls, send false text messages and track the users' movements.
