What is known so far is that a plane with 170 passengers is having difficulty landing, after the pilot declared an emergency.

Emergency personnel have been called up to be prepared for any scenario.

Firetrucks and ambulances have been called in from Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, and Rishon L’Tzion. The IAF dispatched two 669 emergency rescue helicopters to the area.

    Careful..this may be a "trial run"to test the emergency response system at BG by the muslim enemy.

  2. What an ingenious way to deliver a nuclear bomb into Israel! I am sure that Israel can defect in advance before the plane lands. If not, … I don't want to think of the possibility.

  3. Lori Fajnsod Maslow says:

    As if an ElAl jet would be given the same courtesy in another country. I'd be really careful and agree that this could be a 'test run'.

  4. You are right, it can in US or EU happen.

  5. We always do for them,they try to kill us and the world blames us all the time
