Sources in Lebanon are saying that Israel is using eagles to spy on Hezbollah. They show a photo of one of the birds with a ring round its leg. Inscribed on the ring are the words ‘Tel Aviv University’. Well, you might be forgiven for thinking that has something to do with ornithological studies. These accusations follow further ruffling of feathers by Egypt that Israel was spying on Egyptian forces in Sinai by way of storks.
