A total of 150 passengers who were scheduled to travel from Kishinev, Moldova, to Israel contend that the flight was canceled because the air firm made a mistake that resulted in the removal of all the Jews from the plane.
Two people with similar names were reportedly enrolled for the flight, which is why it was canceled.
Both passengers were incorrectly listed as one person by the Air Moldova firm.
One passenger was left standing after everyone else had boarded the aircraft, which sparked heated exchanges with the flight crew about seating arrangements.
The pilot then said that he was terminating the flight and departing.
Most of the passengers who had boarded, traveling back from Uman, were compelled to exit the aircraft and were escorted back to the terminal before being told to proceed.
Local police intervened and began forcibly removing them from the terminal when they sat down and refused to move, requesting another flight to transport them to their destination.
The police officers leaped on the passengers and took their phones when they attempted to take pictures of the officers.
“They’re treating us like dogs,” a passenger complained, “police used electric shockers on one person, and I don’t have pictures because anyone pulling out a phone gets jumped by a policeman.
We are being forcefully ejected from the terminal by them.
The next flight to Israel isn’t for another two days, so the passengers are left stranded.
אנטישימיות בקישנב: עשרות יהודים הורדו מהטיסה בשל טעות של החברה. 2 אנשים בעלי שם זהה היו רשומים בטיסה לישראל בטיסה מקישינב מולדובה לכיוון נתב"ג. מסיבה לא ברורה בחברת אייר מולד חישבו את שני האנשים עם השם הזהה כאדם אחד.
כולם התמקמו במטוס ואחד נותר ללא מקום ישיבה, מה שגרם לבלגן> pic.twitter.com/QcxCFvgPhw
