A closure of airspace across the Middle East led to the suspension and diversion of flights on Saturday after Iran launched drones toward Israel.

United Airlines, which resumed services to Tel Aviv early last month after suspending its Israeli flights following Hamas attacks in October, canceled its flight from Newark to Tel Aviv on Saturday after Israel closed its airspace. Jordan and Iraq also closed their airspace, according to the state-owned Jordanian news agency Al-Mamlaka.
