Israeli official: Dagestan incident ongoing, several Israelis and Jews under guard

An Israeli security official says the incident in Dagestan’s capital of Makhachkala is ongoing after a plane from Israel was attacked by a local pro-Palestinian mob.

“A limited number of Israelis and Jews are currently isolated and under guard at the airport,” the official says.

“We are working on having them depart on a connection flight to Moscow once conditions allow it,” he adds.

“Israeli security officials and the Israeli ambassador are working with the local security authorities.”
