    The United States is prohibiting American carriers from flying to Israel's airport in Tel Aviv for 24 hours, because of rising violence between Israel and Hamas militants. The action was announced on Tuesday, after a rocket fired by Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip landed near the airport. As VOA's Carolyn Presutti tells us, international officials soon may have to determine which combat zones are too dangerous for commercial flights.

    The US stopping all flights into and out of Ben Gurion Airport is another way Obama can help thos "Poor" Palestinians who are so tired of firing rockets into Israel.
    There is no immediate threat or danger to any flights from foreign countries landing at BGA, it is another way for the anti-semites to help the enemy. This is my view on the matter.
