When the alarm bell rings, panic crosses people’s faces – our reader reports from Tel Aviv airport

When the alarm bell rings, panic crosses people’s faces – our reader reports from Tel Aviv airport

October 7, 2023 – 11:07 pm

“I’m not afraid, if I panic, it doesn’t help me much,” says Veronica, whom we recently contacted by phone, and who has been at Tel Aviv airport since 8:30 in the morning. “We arrived in Israel last Saturday, and were supposed to return home this Saturday. We woke up at 6 a.m., and about half an hour later we heard strange noises that sounded like a crash. At that time, there was no news available about what happened. We were living in In the middle of the city, when the sirens went off very soon, our landlord took us to the apartment’s shelter. When we didn’t hear anything, we left the shelter and headed to the airport. We got out relatively quickly. We were supposed to fly with RyanAir, but the notification kept saying the flight was delayed “Due to a technical problem. This continued until late afternoon, and then we received notice that our flight had been cancelled.”

According to Veronica, there is no panic at the airport. “Everyone is trying to stay calm, but when the alarm goes off and we are turned away, panic crosses people’s faces, and there seem to be more and more armed men, but of course I don’t know what to compare that to as if there were more people in the city. I don’t panic either.” But sirens and bombs are sounding, so it would be good to leave here as soon as possible. I also spoke with the consular service, and they helped my family a lot. We just bought a ticket for the Israeli Airlines flight. We will take this flight because it seems safer, but no I can bear to check if that’s really the case because I’m already tired. “We just hope we really leave at six-thirty tomorrow,” our reader told Telex from Tel Aviv airport.
