Israel’s Security apparatus is concerned that Al-Qaeda is planning a large scale terror attack on Israel’s civil aviation, Walla reported.

Recently there has been an increase in the warnings within the security system about possible attacks against civilian and foreign flights by terrorists affiliated with Al-Qaeda and other groups, who are working on such an attack.

At the same time, there has been an increase in reports by ground crews and flight attendant noting that when Israeli planes are landing in foreign countries, they are approached by Middle-Eastern civilians who photograph them ostentatiously.

Senior defense officials suspect that this could be part of intelligence-gathering efforts of terrorist groups that include the “Al-Quds Corp,” the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and Hezbollah, in preparation for terrorist attacks around the world.

These efforts correspond to a promise made last year by Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, on his plan to avenge Israel’s assassination of the head of his organization’s military wing, Imad Mughniyah, and Israel’s elimination of nuclear scientists in Iran.

Israel’s defense apparatus and the IDF have enhanced recently the guidelines for senior officers, diplomats and former military officials staying abroad on how to deal with potential threats and how to increase the level of personal safety. In a few exceptional cases, flights to targeted destinations have been canceled.

In addition, Walla reports, several key new steps have been taken to secure the air and ground crews on Israeli airlines, which were already considered the safest in the world.

  1. bad choice of picture! Why would you choose to put up a picture of what appears to have been a terror attack when the article is talking about a scare of such, and on a plane, no less. The picture is upsetting and misleading. Next time make sure your cover photo is in synch with your article.

  2. Yori Yanover says:

    What would you suggest?

  3. Anonymous says:

    how about a photo of el al ticket desk, or el al airliner. I often wonder why the ticket desk where hundreds of Jews line up has not been attacked. TSA is sloppy and does not even notice dropped of baggage inside the air terminal, I know this from my own dealings with them.

  4. Joseph Isaacs says:

    It was attacked & security killed them in a second about 3 years ago el al is soooo safe wow

  5. The "facts" as presented in this flimsy article are suspect at best. Appears to be yet another ploy to con the USA into some rash military action.
