A Lebanese shopper discovered several food items made in Israel in one of Lebanon’s largest retailers Tuesday.

While shopping at Spinneys in the coastal city of Sidon, a man, who preferred to remain anonymous, discovered a bag of three kinds of peppers made in Israel.

He immediately contacted local authorities who in turn contacted the Lebanese Army.

Members of military intelligence and police arrived to Spinneys to discover 13 similar bags that have the word “Israel” printed on the sale tag.

Police also noticed that the international bar code for the items was scratched with a blue pen and a new code was handwritten on the bag.

The case was then referred to the military judiciary for investigation into how the products made it through the customs department at the port or the airport.

Spinneys had a similar incident almost ten years ago when shoppers discovered mugs made in Israel being sold at the retailer.

Maybe after they’re done investigating the Great Zionist Pepper Caper of 2012, the Lebanese military judiciary can turn their efforts towards the guy who took the photo of the offending peppers on his Israeli-technology based cell phone.
