The rare disruption of flights came just days after Israeli fighter jets shot down a foreign drone that entered Israeli airspace on Saturday.
The object was spotted by the air force, which issued an alert, Army Radio reported. Fighter jets were scrambled and personnel at the airport's air traffic control tower instructed to ground flights and order incoming planes to circle until an all-clear was issued, the radio said.
Minutes later the all-clear was given after suspicions a foreign aircraft may have entered Israeli airspace were proved unfounded, the radio said.
