Airspace closures across the Middle East were grounded and planes diverted on Saturday after Iran launched drones at Israel.

United Airlines, which resumed service to Tel Aviv early last month after Israel suspended flights after Hamas attacks in October, grounded its Newark to Tel Aviv flight on Saturday after Israel closed its airspace. Jordan and Iraq have also closed their airspace, according to Jordanian state-owned news outlet Al Mamlaqa.
