National carrier Middle East Airlines has denied a media report that two of its planes were targeted by surface-to-air missiles in Syrian airspace.
In a statement it issued late Monday, MEA said the company's planes continue to use the Syrian airspace which “is open and functions naturally.”
“The company has held the necessary contacts with the specialized agencies” in that regard, it said, without giving further details.
The statement also urged media outlets to broadcast and publish accurate information after a news website reported the alleged attack.
