Israel has instituted new airline safety procedures in the wake of the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.

Following assessments by Israeli defense officials, a long list of airline safety procedures were implemented, Israel’s Channel 2 reported Sunday.

The guidelines are confidential for security reasons, but one that has been instituted, according to Channel 2, is to identify foreign aircraft much earlier before they enter Israeli airspace.

Unnamed Transportation Ministry officials told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday that there is “an instruction to increase alertness and nothing more,” and that no drastic measures have been taken.
