Israel: Israeli jets were scrambled to meet U.S. jet

Arutz Sheva reports the Israel Airports Authority is investigating the scrambling of air force planes last weekend to shoot down a Continental Airlines passenger plane suspected of being flown to Israel with terrorist intentions, according to a Tuesday report by Haaretz.

A technical failure is believed to have prevented the airliner's pilots from identifying their flight plan upon entry to Israeli airspace, as required.
