An airport security officer stumbled upon the dangerous contents of the luggage. Following instructions, he discreetly reported the incident to management and said that the decision had been made to evacuate the section of the waiting room under his control.
Unfortunately, his words were heard by one of the passengers, who immediately decided to do his bit to protect the lives of his compatriots and shouted throughout the huge room. Apparently, to understand it better, the man began to shout: “Terrorists!”
Fortunately, there were hardly any casualties: the only injury during the turmoil was received by a 32-year-old Israeli, who for some reason jumped on the luggage belt and then fell. He was later diagnosed with a broken rib.
When the hubbub at the airport died down, experts discovered that the Americans’ luggage contained a shell without an explosive. Israeli law enforcement has yet to comment on the situation.
