Nasrallah's press conference was also being shown live in Israel, but when the decoded images from Israeli spy planes were aired, showing Israel's interest in the Hezbollah-free routes that Hariri regularly took along the sea front and in particular the corner where Hariri's assassination took place, Israel stopped the live visual transmission and went to voice-only updates.

Israeli Media Stopped Nasrallah's Live Broadcast when Aerial Footage was Aired
Al-Akhbar newspaper said Tuesday that the Israeli media stopped Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah's live broadcast when al-Manar unveiled footage allegedly intercepted from Israeli surveillance planes of the Lebanese coastline, including the site of the murder of ex-PM Rafik Hariri prior to his 2005 assassination.

It said the Israeli media followed up Nasrallah's length press conference "minute by minute."

Arab affairs commentators were commenting on Nasrallah's remarks, when coverage suddenly stopped at the start of the aerial footage, in a clear indication of the trauma and the inability to continue to comment in response to these facts, Al-Akhbar said.
