Hundreds of Israelis return from Dubai with their luggage staying in UAE

Hundreds of Israeli travelers who returned from the United Arab Emirates in recent days landed in Israel only to find out that their suitcases stayed in Dubai, Channel 12 news reports.

The report says the reason is a malfunction at the Dubai airport.

“I returned from Dubai on Tuesday, and I and half our flight simply haven’t gotten our luggage,” says traveler Nicole Roitman, adding that airport staff told her there was no point in making inquiries since “nobody will answer.”

Additionally, hundreds of travelers who landed today from Dubai are refusing to be taken to coronavirus hotels, as required in new guidelines that came into force yesterday, in scenes described by Hebrew-language media as chaotic.
