|Cell phones are some of the least secure devices. Loose lips sink ships means you can kill your buddies if you talk opsec on that phone. Don't use any phone unless it is a red handset to a crypto and the light is on secure.|
Assume that everyone in that country and some other enemy nations are trying to use this as a staging ground to kill you. Wake up. The Taliban just shot a lady in the streets who they claim was an adulterer. They are nuts there. They doused children with acid to prevent them from going to school. They don't have any issue with wiretapping you calls.
A wiretap can be anywhere in the system. They have operatives in every section of the country. That phone call can be captured at or between cells. Between repeaters or at exchanges.
