BEIRUT (Reuters) - All passengers exited an Iranian plane that landed in Beirut after a fighter jet approached it over Syrian airspace on Thursday, Beirut airport head Fadi Hassan told Reuters.
He said there were only minor injuries.
The pilot of the Iranian passenger plane had to change altitude quickly to avoid collision, which injured several passengers, the IRIB news agency said earlier.
