The visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to London was under threat due to the refusal of the pilots to operate the flight. This was reported by the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph citing a UK government source.

The Israeli authorities were unable to find a pilot for a flight to London due to mass strikes and protests against Netanyahu’s policies and his reform of the judiciary.

“As we understand it, Israeli pilots refuse to take Netanyahu to the UK,” the source said.

The prime minister was supposed to fly to London on March 23, and the next day he was scheduled to hold talks with his British counterpart Rishi Sunak. The heads of government of the two countries wanted to discuss the Iranian issue and the need to form a united international front against the Islamic republic.

The newspaper does not say whether the Israeli prime minister will visit the United Kingdom.

Mass protests against the Netanyahu cabinet have been going on in Israel since the beginning of January. The protesters oppose the reform of the country’s judicial system. The police have to use water cannons to disperse the crowd.
