Foreign airline companies met on Wednesday to formulate a plan to receive millions of dollars in compensation from the state of Israel following the grounding and delaying of dozens of flights after a contaminant was found in Israel's jet fuel supply last Thursday, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.

During the meeting, which was held with officials from the Israel Airports Authority at the authority's offices at Ben Gurion Airport, the IAA told foreign airline officials that all of the fuel at Ben Gurion was entirely clean of contaminants and that in the coming days the IAA will present each company with written assurance of the fuel's safety.
