Lebanon has arrested three more citizens and charged them with spying for Israel.

The arrests reported Wednesday come on the heels of the arrests last month of several employees of a state-owned telecom company, to which Israel allegedly has undercover ties.

Dozens of accused spies for Israel have been arrested in Lebanon since April 2009. More than 20 have been formally charged with spying for Israel.

The new arrests include a high-ranking army officer, a Christian party member who is also a retired army colonel and a telecom firm employee, Reuters reported.

Two Lebanese citizens have been sentenced to death for spying for Israel.
