Major U.S. Airlines Cancel Flights to Tel Aviv After Rocket Scare

Following a report of a rocket attack near the Ben Gurion airport in Tel Aviv, Delta, U.S. Air, and United have canceled or redirected flights headed there. At 12:15 p.m., the FAA banned all U.S. airlines from flying to Ben Gurion for 24 hours.

Only Delta had to redirect a flight that was on its way to Tel Aviv from JFK. The airline now says service to Tel Aviv is suspended indefinitely.

The conflict in Gaza grows worse by the day—Hamas has not stopped firing rockets at Israel, and Israel hasn't stopped its ground invasion in Gaza. As of today, 576 Palestinians and 27 Israelis have been killed.
