Israel prepares for possible attack by hijacked Malaysian plane.
Since the possibility grows that Malaysia Airlines flight 370 may have been hijacked and taken to a hidden location, Israeli authorities are preparing for the possibility that the hijackers might attempt to use the Boeing 777- 200 to mount an attack.
Israel has tightened airspace rules for aircraft entering Israeli airspace according to a report on Israel's media. The report said that the rules have been tightened in response to the missing Malaysian plane MH370. According to the report, security officials and aviation authorities recently held a security assessment and decided upon a series of security measures intended to enhance safety in Israeli airspace.
Among the measures, airliners are now required to identify themselves much earlier when approaching Israel’s airspace. Additional unnamed measures have been taken to protect Israel from potential attacks via its airspace from hijacked/sabotaged commercial jetliners.
