A very exciting development, as the noose of international opprobrium tightens.

IDF general returns from U.K. before plane lands, fearing arrest

By Aluf Benn, Haaretz Correspondent

Former Israel Defense Forces GOC Southern Command General (res.) Doron Almog flew to the U.K. Sunday but returned before the plane landed due to rumors that a warrant was out for his arrest.

The El Al flight carrying Almog turned around in mid-air and returned to Israel.

The rumors stemmed from a war crimes suit against Almog being filed by a London-based organization representing Palestinians.
