'Israeli spy planes flew over Budapest'

Reports about Israeli spy planes entering Hungary follow mysterious killing of Syrian in Budapest

Published: 03.18.10, 18:43 / Israel News

Two Israeli aircraft appearing to be spy planes flew near Budapest's international airport last week but did not land there, Hungarian media reported Thursday.

According to the reports, the planes were on a "spy mission" that may be connected to the assassination of a Syrian national in his vehicle Wednesday in the Hungarian capital.

The two Gulfstream planes, reportedly equipped with the IDF's finest intelligence means, flew through Turkey, Bulgaria, and Romania before entering Hungary's airspace, the media outlets said. The aircraft were said to leave Hungary after completing their mission, without ever landing in the country.

Responding to media questions, a spokesman for the Hungarian Defense Ministry said that the Israeli planes were on a diplomatic mission.

Meanwhile, the Hungarian Foreign Ministry said that air traffic in the country is under the jurisdiction of the local aviation authority. The Ministry refused to address questions regarding the nature of the mission that prompted the Israeli planes to arrive in Hungary.

The identity of the Syrian national assassinated in Budapest had not yet been published. Hungarian police officials said an unknown assassin shot the 52-year-old Syrian while he was driving his car. The shooter grabbed a black briefcase from the vehicle before fleeing the scene of the attack, police said.

They were actually my planes. I've expanded my hobby remote control airplanes to act as pilot-less drones hell bent on taking out Islamo Fascists wherever I find them. I'm still waiting on my supply of hell fire missiles though. At $80 grand a piece it's taking quite a bite out of my hobby budget.

The Israeli planes were in Hungary airspace with Hungarian approval. I don’t think this article is suggesting Israel is taking any agressive action against Hungary, just speculating it was somehow connected to the killing of a Syrian national.

Considering some of the assassinations in the region the past couple years (Imad Mughniyah, Dubia hit, etc) I wouldn’t put it past Mossad

In order for a slow commercially available plane such as a Gulfstream to be used as a spy plane, it would have to be used covertly.

I guess Gulfstreams are more in style with today’s boogeymen than black helicopters. I imagine it’s a more comfortable ride, at least.

Sorry but this story has to be bogus because first no country would approve a foreign spy plane ooperate on its terrirtory. second and even more important how do you investigate a homicide that happend days ago from a plane?

We use secret Jew jet fuel made from the blood of unbaptised muslim children.

(In seriousness, a civilian Citation X has a 3200nm mile range; the military ones are modified with tanks and can easily hit 4000.)

Not one, but two, Gulfstream jets would be absolutely perfect for this mission. A pity they cannot be configured to tow advertising banners. That way, the Israelis could make some money on this trip ... and you know how those people are about money.

2 things are readily verifiable according to the Hungarian press

1) 2 Israeli planes entered Hungarian airspace with permission, but never landed - at least at the International airpost

2) A Syrian national is killed within the same time period

-the rest looks like speculation, but given the proclivity of Mossad to reach out past its borders and take out undersirables, the timing looks very coincidental

There’s a lot of recent news about Mossad and assassinations. Are they trying to send a message by making this public? BTW, they seem to be admitting after the fact that this “diplomatic” mission had other goals, not an unusual fact except for the detail that Mossad normally prefers to stay out of the press.

How about this story. 2 Israli owned civil planes fly
trough hungary. (as do severall hundrets of civil planes
from other nations). While they have been in the airspace
a dog was killed by a car 2 old people died because of
a heart attack, a few people have been robbed and a man
originated from syria was killed that day in Budapest.

don’t shoot the messenger . . . I wasn’t the one who splashed this story in a widespread Israeli publication ;)

again, considering Mossad’s alleged recent activities this story is worth noting

They've slept well for two years longer than I expected. I hope Israel is willing to admit that it's time to put an end to that.

My criticism wasn´t aimed at you ;-)
It was the “story”
Because after “reports” like this we should better
arrest any citizen from Israel worldwide every time
a single crime happens in one of our cities. Because
hey i´m shure the jews did it. An if really not it must have been those bloody amish ;-)

greetings

FWIW - I think the connection between the two events is pretty weak to say the least. But in the aftermath of the Dubia hit job, it doesn’t surprise me to see a story like this.

looks like the rest of the Israeli press is starting to pick up on this story -

Something to consider: How could “news sources” ever have any knowledge of this information, if they were not fed the information by the Mossad? It is either an intentional leak, or they are just making it up, out of whole cloth.

JH, Great Post. Truly DEBKA- worthy material!

If MOSSAD wanted to off a Syrian in Budapest, they would off a Syrian in Budapest.

He was wondering how the writer knew what was in those airplanes. The writer said they were equipped with Israel’s most advanced technology.. but for all we know they were just carrying Santa’s Elves for a trip to the Via Dolorosa.
