Two Israel fighter jets were dispatched on Friday afternoon to assist a light civilian transport aircraft that was en route from Dubai and had run into some difficulties.

According to a tweet shared by Israeli Air Force, the plane had departed from Dubai and was planning to perform an emergency landing at Ben Gurion Airport due to a suspected missing wheel.

The jets did an on-air inspection and found that all the wheels were normal.

The aircraft then made a safe landing.
