Zaeter sends Turkey letter of objection to putting name of Lebanon on plane landing in occupied Palestine

Public Works and Transportation Minister, Ghazi Zaeter, sent the Turkish authorities a letter of objection against sending a plane bearing Wings of Lebanon name to an airport in occupied Palestine.

Minister Zaeter's act came Thursday as he followed up on the news shown via media resources and social media regarding the plane.

Earlier, head of Rafic Hariri International Airport, Fady Al Hasan, said that the Lebanese authorities were not responsible for Wings of Lebanon airplane that landed in Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport.

Al Hasan added that this particular plane was rented from a Turkish company called Tailwind Airlines and was sent off to Turkey on August 27, 2016 for periodic maintenance.

"However, the company operated the plan between Antalya and Ben Gurion without removing the Wings of Lebanon logo," he pointed out.

Zaeter on Thursday held a meeting with the administration of civil aviation and checked out the works carried out in Rafic Hariri International Airport.

On a different note, Zaeter received MPs Mohammad Safadi, Hasan Fadlallah, Nabil Nicholas, Neematallah Abi Nasr and others and reviewed with them developmental affairs.
