'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.

The writer might as well add that they were drawn by reindeer and piloted by fat men with white beards in red suits.
so this is how it all starts... WWIII
It sounds better than the truth anyway
What exactly are you guys saying is BS about this? I don’t doubt you but I’m just not following along.
be ready hungary the IDF is comming!!!!
what a load of crap.
i don´t believe this for only one second
Yep, soon they'll be dropping adam bombs!
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
Adam Gadahn, aka ‘Azzam the American’ ? Sure, we could drop him from a plane.
That’s almost 1500 miles one way.. where did these spy planes get the fuel?
I guess Gulfstreams are more in style with today’s boogeymen than black helicopters. I imagine it’s a more comfortable ride, at least.
“Gulfstream: Why trust your finest intelligence means to anything less?”
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?
“Thats almost 1500 miles one way.. where did these spy planes get the fuel?”
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.)
"Yo, Pal, gimme the chicken paprikosh, and no, I am not MOSSAD, why do you ask? Moshe, on the way home, let's pick up some cannoli in Trieste."
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
