FAA Bans U.S. Flights to Israel After Gaza Rocket Explodes Too Close for Comfort
Violent conflict between Israel and Gaza has resulted in a ban from the Federal Aviation Administration of any U.S. airlines flying to the tel Aviv airport in Israel for 24 hours starting Tuesday afternoon. The notice came after a rocket was fired from the Gaza Strip and landed near the main airport on Tuesday. Israel's Transportation Ministry called on the FAA to reverse the decision, claiming Ben-Gurion is one of the "best protected airports in the world."
