JERUSALEM (AP) — A spokeswoman for Israel's international airport says flights were temporarily grounded after two Palestinian truck thieves stormed through airport checkpoints.
Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says say it was unclear why they entered the airport, but it did not appear to be a politically motivated attack.
Ben Gurion Airport spokeswoman Liza Dvir says two Palestinians stole a truck in a nearby residential area early Tuesday and drove toward the airport, barreling past two airport checkpoints.
Dvir says the truck made it close to the main airport terminal when a security guard shot at the car. The two men fled by foot and guards apprehended them. There were no injuries.
Dvir says flights were briefly grounded, and some flight schedules were delayed. She says airport activity has returned to normal.
