Hizbullah Warns against Messing with Private Telephone Network


Relax man, they're just using Skype messenger to make calls, nothing that sophisticated.

Prince,

Don't underestimate the level of sophistications these terrorists have invested in. They have 24/7 power to the switching equipment, and maybe some of it is actually in Syria unaffected by power and fuel availability in Lebanon. This switched network is mostly broad band fiber optics fairly immune to EMP and low cost intelligence gathering equipment.

Through this redundant network they communicate Audio and video between their remote sites and the command and control headquarters in Syria (Mognieh is a proof of that) and Da7ieh. They can use it orchestrate the launch of their more powerful missiles remotely with minimum human assistance.

Since it is a private closed network they may connect wireless monitoring equipment to it anywhere and spy or cause harm to anyone in the country.

I think it should confiscated and taken over by the government at any cost.

I dont see what the fuss is all about... HA is not providing a service to the public. Telecommunication in leb is privatised and owned by Marwan Hmade's son, so HA is not competting with the Gov neither with Hamade Jnr. The purpose is strictly military and used for security purposes.

How many private communication networks exists around the world? Is there any military in the world thats uses a public network?

Do you people expect Sayyed Hassan Nassrallah to discuss national security with HA generals on a public line, knowing that his conversations are all monitored?

come on....

It also does not take much to tap into the network either. Nothing is secure, even if you are speaking to the person next to you.

As long as there are wires dug in the soil somewhere, they will always in some way or another be tracked eventually, compromised and used to spy or eavesdrop. All it takes is one single discovery of a landline network cable. To be able to set up this kind of network nationally, there will need to be extremely secure sets of terrain in order to complete this kind of thing.

All I can think of is maybe an internal neighbourhood network like between a suburb or two, say in Da7ieh for example... Well the issue there is that half those suburbs are illegal in the first place, so it's a bit more than a telephone network, it's the whole town altogether!!!!

Those areas are meant to be owned by the government for airport security. There is absolutely no insurance company in the world that will insure areas directly underneath aeroplane pathways as they come in to land or takeoff. The problem here was that these refugees were allowed to settle there and illegally build during the war however if there was to be a fatal accident such as a plane crash when coming to land, none of these people would be given compensation, so it's a kind of bargain chip... you wanna risk living there, its your fault if you die and you ain't gonna be paid out in the result of a humanitarian disaster.
