Eilat Airport was reopened on Saturday after stormy weather in the southern city led to its closure on Friday.
Tree branches and stones blown on to the runway by the storm were cleared, allowing the airport to reopen after three incoming flights and three outgoing flights had been canceled.
According to Army Radio, some 4,000 travelers were expected to pass through the airport on Saturday.
