JERUSALEM –  Israel’s military ordered the partial closure Thursday of an airport in the Red Sea resort of Eilat over a security concern in the region that borders Egypt’s lawless Sinai Peninsula.

The military instructed the airport to cancel all landings until further notice, said a military spokesman, Lt. Col. Peter Lerner. He initially said departures were also called off, but later said planes were still being allowed to leave Thursday evening.

Lerner said all flights would eventually be rerouted to an airfield north of the city.
