According to certain media reports, Sudanese officials suspect that a vulture “captured” in early December was spying for Israel, after it was found carrying GPS equipment marked “Israel Nature Service”.
Sudanese officials suspect Israel of using GPS-tagged vultures as spy drones, according to the Egyptian media.
Cairo daily El Balad reported on Monday, in a story followed up by Israeli news site Haaretz and UK daily The Telegraph, that Sudan’s military had “captured” one such vulture at the beginning of December in the country’s Darfur region.
The bird was equipped with a solar-powered GPS device that could reportedly transmit images by satellite.
Sudanese officials, according to El Balad, suspect the scavenging bird of being an Israeli spy.
