A mysterious floating device, first thought to be a UFO, which was spotted by locals in the central Turkish province of Malatya turned out to an Israeli balloon, Turkey’s Hurriyet Daily News reported on Friday.

According to the report, the blue and white balloon, emblazoned with the words “Welcome to Israel” and marked with a Star of David, set off UFO excitement moments before it landed in a garden in Malatya’s Hekimhan district.

Turkish gendarmerie military forces seized the flying object after some locals expressed concern that it may have been used by Israel for surveillance purposes.

Turkey confirmed last month that it is in the midst of negotiating a reconciliation agreement with Israel. The deal would boost ties between the former allies, which have deteriorated since the infamous May 2010 Gaza flotilla incident.

    The Turks haven’t figured it out yet: it is a new Israeli A=Bomb delivery vehicle currently being tested by them.

    Israel claims it is a.) Totally silent and b.)
    can be delivered anywhere the wind blows it !!!!

    Turkey, the home of the Seven Churches of Revelation, should not despise its position in God. it should work to come back to the fold. repair all the destroyed synagogues and allow Judaism and Christianity to flow as before, then and only then, can that country enjoy total peace. islam is not for peace but for war, that is why turkey has not enjoyed her peace as she ought. You can also see the raproachment Egypt is is making towards the state of Israel, and it is in doing so, they will endear the blessing of Jehovah the God of Israel. amen.
