Lebanon: Lebanon Spying on Syria

This is how Lebanon spies on Syria: Lebanon sends IT experts to inflict modernity on the Syrian government. Those experts design a network for the telecommunications ministry, and help them create a password. And when one day those experts access the system that they had designed using a password they created, they are called spies and kicked out of the country. More from Abu Kais.
