reported Thursday that officials had captured a bird carrying spying equipment for Israel.
The Israeli outlet Walla news said that local Sudanese media reported that the bird was identified as Israeli because it was carrying Hebrew labels that read “Israel Nature Authority” and “Hebrew University Jerusalem.”
While details of the story remain sketchy, the reports suggested there was a solar-powered device attached to the bird’s leg. Sudanese media claimed the device was capable of taking photos and sending them back to Israel.
Relations between Israel and Sudan are already nonexistent, but tensions rose after the African country blamed Jerusalem for an October airstrike on a weapons factory in Khartoum.
