Dozens of flights were delayed in Tel Aviv due to the strike.

A mass strike by employees of the David Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv, who on Wednesday stopped checking in for flights, has led to numerous flight delays and long lines of passengers, Israeli media reported.


According to The Times of Israel newspaper, airport employees, in protest against working conditions and non-fulfillment of contractual obligations, refused to check passengers on their flights for several hours.


The protest is due to end at 14:00 local time, but flight delays are still expected, the newspaper reports.


Airport employees are unhappy with the fact that they continue to work under working conditions that were introduced during the pandemic, which, in particular, included wage cuts.
