Israeli Leader Netanyahu, after Meeting with Pence, forced to Spend Extra Night in Poland after Plane Breaks Down

WARSAW - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to spend Thursday night in Warsaw, Poland, after problems with his plane.
The El Al plane on which the prime minister and his entire entourage were set to travel suffered a breakdown just before takeoff Thursday following a two-day visit to a high-profile security conference initiated by the U.S. that included a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence.
The Israeli delegation was on-board during the breakdown. A tractor pulling the plane out on the runway apparently tugged it too strongly, leading to the breakdown.
Netanyahu and his wife were promptly taken off the plane Thursday and escorted to a hotel, where they spent the night.
Following the mishap, another plane was dispatched from Israel in a bid to return the Israeli delegation Friday, just before the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath.
The Israeli delegation had to use the Israeli airline’s plane because the government doesn’t have an official plane for the prime minister. The government has long sought to purchase a plane for official travel such as the journey to Poland. (Fox News)
