A British Airways flight from London to Tel Aviv has been diverted because of security concerns, the airline said on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Israel on Wednesday formed a rare emergency government with some opposition members to see the country through its ongoing war with Hamas.

According to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, a “war management cabinet” will be established with three members.

The members are Netanyahu, Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and ex-Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who now heads an opposition party.

Meanwhile, gunmen from Islamist group Hamas invaded Israel from the Gaza Strip on Saturday in a surprise assault that killed at least 1,200 people.

It was the deadliest Palestinian militant attack in Israeli history.

However, Israel has since responded with a massive bombardment of Gaza that has killed over 1,055.

Israel also deployed thousands of troops around the enclave amid growing expectations it will launch a ground invasion to destroy Hamas.
