DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's state-run news agency says Israeli spying devices have been found in the country's coastal region.

SANA's report on Thursday says the devices are designed to photograph, register and transfer data. There were no further details on the objects or the location of the find.

State-run TV aired footage of an object consisting of what looked like a camera and a satellite dish, and other objects that resembled rocks. Plastic boxes resembling batteries and cables were shown lined up in a room.

Syria and Israel are at a state of war and fought several battles over the past.

Israeli warplanes carried out an air raid near Damascus in January. U.S. officials said the target was a convoy of sophisticated Russian SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles. Syria said a research center was hit.
