Two Israeli Air Force spy planes have been detected over Hungary’s international airport after having made their way there via Turkey, Bulgaria and Romania, local reports say,
The planes were reportedly laden with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, and the mission was connected to the assassination of a Syrian citizen in Hungary on Wednesday.
A state official told the media the planes were involved in a “diplomatic mission”, and Hungarian Foreign Ministry officials have not released any official statements, apparently unwilling to comment.
A Syrian in his 50s was assassinated in Budapest while driving in his vehicle. He was shot and the assassin reportedly made off with a black briefcase from the vehicle. His identity has not yet been disclosed.
