Hamas security personnel on Friday discovered a micro spy camera hidden inside a rock, sources in the Gaza Strip said.

The espionage device was discovered in an agricultural field near the town of Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip, the sources added.

According to the sources, Hamas security officers dismantled the spy camera. The device was discovered “with the help of local residents,” they said.

The sources pointed out that the area where the camera was found is often the scene of clashes between Palestinian protesters and IDF soldiers.

Several Palestinian websites published what they said were photos of the rock with the tiny camera hidden inside it.
