Thousands of Israeli tourists have been trapped in Turkey for days, due to cancelled flights to Israel.

Needless to say, the atmosphere in Turkey towards Israel isn’t pleasant at the moment.

This morning, beginning at 5am, El Al initiated a rescue mission, at the request of the Israeli Ministry of Transportation, sending multiple planes to Turkey to bring back the stranded Israeli citizens.

So far 3 flights have landed in Turkey, and El Al is expected to fly in 3 more planes at least.
