Jordan closes airspace amid threat of Iranian counter-strike against Israel; 2 UAE flights to Israel turn back

Jordan will temporarily close its airspace starting Saturday night to all incoming, departing and transit aircraft, state-owned Al Mamlaka news says amid the threat of an Iranian counter-strike against Israel.

Channel 12 reports that two flights from the Emirati airline Fly Dubai turned back toward the United Arab Emirates after taking off en route for Israel, ostensibly due to concerns regarding an Iranian threat or the decision by Jordan to close its airspace.
