A British passenger airplane nearly collided with an Israeli Air Force jet three weeks ago, sources revealed Tuesday.

The British plane, en route to Europe, veered from its flight path beginning in Egypt and entered Israeli airspace without authorization.

Following the incident, a complaint was submitted to the Egyptian aviation authority which was responsible for supervising the flight and a team was appointed to look into the incident on behalf of the Israeli Air Force.
