Egypt Air Flight Comes Back Safe

Egypt Air flight num 320 came back to cairo after getting through the attack zone .
Extreme Israeli violence against the Lebanese capital yesterday caused the forced return of an EgyptAir flight holding 98 passengers to cairo airport at half past
one a.m because of difficulties to land in Beirut airport .
Its captain managed to escape after taking clearance
from Cyprus to enter , then returning to Cairo safely .
It is said that it was impossible to land in Beirut airport as a result of the continuous Israeli attacks .
This definitly proves the efficiency of the egyptian pilots in such circumstances .
*Fortunately the plane is safe lest there would have been another rumor saying that the captain committed
suicide .

I also beleive that the suicide theory to the 767 crash is ridiculous!!!

The Israeli bombing yesterday targeted a Syrian radar station 35 km east of Beirut. That usually doesn't affect flights to or from Beirut.

My guess is that this flight was approaching from the east at the exact time of the attack. Otherwise, they can just reroute it without overflying this region.
