ISTANBUL - A Turkish Airlines plane flying from Istanbul to Tel Aviv turned back on Tuesday as the company halted flights there for 24 hours due to security reasons, company spokesman Ali Genc told Reuters.

"Turkish Airlines has decided to suspend its Tel Aviv flights for a 24-hour period," Genc said, adding that the company would continue to monitor the situation. The move follows similar decisions by other airlines.
