Israel’s Arkia Airlines refused to let Druse passengers board a flight to Tel Aviv, citing security reasons. In what was the second such incident in two weeks, the passengers had ordered tickets and paid for them ahead of time. But they were told upon arriving at the terminal in Kiryat Shmona they could not board because the required security checks could not be conducted.
