Many protestors even made it onto the tarmac as the angry mob surrounded planes on arrival.

This was reportedly in an attempt to attack any Jews who arrived on the flight from Israel, according to reports from Russian media.

Visegrad 24 claims that some members of the pack interrogated one of the plane technicians, asking him: “tell us where the Jews are”.

Overwhelmed staff pleaded with the mob to leave as they stormed into the airport, forcing open doors and overturning equipment.

Some were seen flying Palestinian flags as they raced up escalators and barged through security.

Footage reportedly from the scene shared on local Telegram channels showed rioters chanting “Allahu Akbar”.

Others stopped cars in order to check the documents of passengers to ensure they were not Israeli or Jewish, reports the Jerusalem Post.

The outlet also claims that in Khasavyurt, also located in Dagestan, rioters gathered at a hotel where Israelis who had fled the fighting were reported to be staying.

It is alleged that some entered the hotel and checked door-to-door, only leaving after ensuring that no Jewish people in the property.

Sota reports that special forces have been deployed on the runway.

The airport has paused all operations, with two incoming flights already sent into a holding pattern.

Dagestan’s population is overwhelmingly Muslim with 83 percent of the region followers of the religion.

According to Channel 12, the crowd was apparently largely made up of Palestinian expats.
