Israelis that were in Turkey during the terror attack that occurred late Wednesday at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul returned Thursday to Israel.

One of the passengers, Ela Ben-Harosh from Jerusalem, stated "The largest terminal in the airport looked like a refugee camp, all of the businesses were closed and there was no one to speak to."

The passengers landed at Ben Gurion International Airport less than 24 hours after the suicide attack that took the lives of at least 41 people and wounded 239. "We heard a chain of explosions and there was fear and panic," Ben-Harosh said.
