Israeli security officials have changed flight paths over northern Israel so planes don’t pass over the Israeli Arab city of Umm el-Fahm. Deputy Defense Minister Ze’ev Boim confirmed the change at a Knesset hearing Wednesday, Ha’aretz reported. Aviation industry sources said the change is designed to minimize the chances of aircraft being attacked from the ground.
