All flights to and from Hamburg Airport have been suspended after a “threat of an attack on an aircraft” inbound from the Iranian capital of Tehran.
Germany’s DPA News Agency has reported on the incident citing an airport spokeswoman.
It said in a tweet: “All flights at Germany’s Hamburg Airport are suspended due to a threat of an attack on an aircraft from the Iranian capital Tehran, an airport spokeswoman tells DPA.”
The news comes amid heightened tensions following a terrorist attack in Israel by Hamas. The group is known to have links to Iran.

Tehran said in a statement: “We emphatically stand in unflinching support of Palestine; however, we are not involved in Palestine’s response, as it is taken solely by Palestine itself.”
