Saudi Arabia said refusing to allow Israeli plane to use airspace

An Israir flight to the United Arab Emirates has been held up for hours at Ben Gurion International Airport due to Saudi Arabia’s refusal to grant approval to the Israeli airline to use its airspace, according to Hebrew media reports.

But according to the Globes business daily, an El Al flight to Dubai took off as planned this afternoon and received permission to use Saudi airspace.

There is no immediate comment from the Foreign Ministry on the incident.
