Last week, a tweet from an Israeli journalist that an aircraft flew from Tel Aviv to Islamabad sparked a storm of rumors on social media.
According to BBC the plane was not registered in Israel and it actually flew from Amman.
Avi Scharf, editor of Israeli newspaper Haretz who first tweeted about the alleged arrival of the aircraft, said the plane did not directly fly from the Israeli capital into Islamabad.
He, however spoke of trick the pilot allegedly may have used to make it look like a flight from Amman-Islamabad instead of a Tel Aviv-Islamabad flight.
