Early Sunday, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon reopened their airspace after last night's temporary closing after the massive Iranian drone-attack on Israel. 

Jordan's state-owned TV said that the air traffic activities in the airspace of the kingdom are resumed.

In the same context, Iraqi authorities announced the re-opening of the airspace as security risks were overcome.

Lebanon as well announced that the activity of Rafik Al Hariri Airport is resumed after the overnight closure.

Saturday's night, Iran launched more than 100 drones and ballistic and cruise missiles at Israel as the first direct military threat to Israel after the Israeli attack on the Iranian diplomatic compound in Syria.

Sirens were alerted for more than 700 times, according to Israeli media outlets and heavy thuds and bangs were heard from aerial interceptions of explosive drones.

Israel’s military spokesperson Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari said 99 percent of more than 300 drones and missiles fired by Iran were intercepted by Israel and its allies.
