Russia denies role in Israeli airport GPS jamming

27 June 2019

Russia has denied Israeli suggestions that it is behind disruption of GPS signals at Israel's Ben Gurion airport.

Since early June, GPS signals at the airport have been unreliable for pilots and planes using the location.

The missing navigational data has had a "significant impact" on airport operations, said Israel's Airports Authority.

Russia's ambassador to Israel said the accusation was "fake news" and could not be "taken seriously".

The Israeli Airline Pilots Association said the GPS problems were a "spoofing" attack that produces incorrect location data. This can mean receivers on planes sometimes reporting their location as miles away from where they actually are.

BBC Monitoring said Israeli IDF radio had quoted "high-ranking" sources as blaming Russia for the continuing disruption.

1. Actually, Russia messes with GPS as a regular security-measure.

When Putin travels, Russia messes with the GPS-location of his location to make it harder for foreign countries to track his exact position.
