A disturbing scene unfolded at Makhachkala Airport in Dagestan, Russia, as a local crowd reportedly initiated searches of arriving passengers, specifically targeting individuals believed to be of Jewish descent. The turmoil escalated after reports emerged of a group of Israelis present at the airport, prompting a surge of agitation within the crowd.
Amidst the chaos, footage emerged showcasing the gravity of the situation, with the crowd forcefully entering the terminal, intensifying the climate of uncertainty and fear. Reports indicated that the tension peaked as the crowd attempted to access the tarmac, seemingly aiming to encircle a passenger aircraft that had recently arrived from Tel Aviv.
In the midst of the unsettling events, a Russian pilot issued a cautionary warning to passengers aboard an aircraft, advising them against attempting to open any doors due to the rioters on the tarmac trying to gain access.
The situation further spiraled as pro-Palestinian protesters reportedly gained control of the airport’s runway, and chants of “Allahu Akbar” reverberated through the air as the crowd allegedly targeted individuals suspected to be of Jewish descent.
