Israeli diplomatic package delivered to Beirut by mistake


An Israeli package from the Israeli Embassy in Larnaca accidentally arrived in Beirut on Wednesday onboard a Cypriot plane. Lebanon has the right to open any diplomatic package to determine whether it contains explosives.

Airport security confiscated the package and is currently conducting investigations over how it arrived in Lebanon.

The package was headed to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and is reported to not contain any explosive material.

It has been handed over to military prosecutor Saqr Saqr who will deliver it to Cypriot Embassy.
