The technical fault which caused El Al flight 027 to make an emergency landing at Ben Gurion Airport early Monday morning was potentially caused by a fracture in the plane's body, Channel 10 News reported.

According to the report, the Boeing 777 which is only 10-years-old may have suffered previous damage which later caused the landing gear to malfunction.

As a result of the incident, experts from Boeing are expected to arrive in Israel to investigate the malfunction.
