A protest by workers at Ben Gurion Airport has left long lines, delayed flights and stranded passengers.

For several hours, workers halted check-in as part of a protest against working conditions and what they say are contractual obligations not being met. Flights have been delayed and passengers have been kept waiting both in the terminal and aboard airplanes.

The protest is slated to end at 2 p.m. local time, although delays are still expected.
