Israel is facing a barrage of hundreds of rockets fired from terrorists in Gaza into cities like Tel Aviv and Holon as the country’s life saving iron dome defense system tries to take down the most serious threats, but still isn’t perfect.

 

A woman in Rishon Lezion has been killed and more, including a 5 year old, have been injured.

All civilian air traffic in and out of Israel has been suspended:

 

Flights like Ukraine Air 777, from Kiev to Tel Aviv, are being diverted to Cyprus:

Some have pointed out that Gaza’s Hamas rulers don’t have an Iron Dome system to prevent Israeli airstrikes.

They do. It’s called Don’t Fire Rockets At Israel.

Haviva Litman-Zwickler

Well said!

AAA

All the flights are landing in TLV.

Cant Israel eliminate all of Gaza like the US did in WWII?

הבא להרגך השכם להרגו!

Wishing and paying for everyone’s safety.

But, why risk flying into an active war zone at this time unless for a very important reason?

Lets pray for our brothers most we can do

For my husband and I, it’s because we live there, and have been trying to get back for almost three weeks!

We were in the airport yesterday waiting for our connecting flight to JFK on Delta when our Machateiniste messaged us that Israel had closed the airport. (Delta agents knew nothing of this at the time!) Thank G-d we found out in enough time to retrieve our luggage and go back to where we’d been staying. We will try again after Yom Tov, G-d willing

Israeli

Great time to remember that all the goyim wants us dead. Muslims or not, They are only doing so in rotation. So please, even though it is difficult for some of you at times, respect and be nice to Israelis who are giving their lives and holding the line and fighting for all the jews around the world. There need to be more Hakarat Hatov, they are doing so for the love of hashem and for the love of the jewish people.

Dan, Due to the situation, Are summer flight prices going to go down or up?

It sure would be nice if Elal 787s had the missile-defense systems built in. I wonder if they’ll now hoe to ground the fleet.

Hoping for better times iyh.
