  1. FAA Lifts Restrictions on Tel Aviv-Bound Flights

    Controversial U.S. restrictions on flights to and from Tel Aviv were lifted last night in a sudden switch, despite continued fighting in Gaza. The FAA barred flights Tuesday after a rocket landed near Ben Gurion Airport, but critics like former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg called it a mistake to shut down flights to the “most secure airport on Earth” because of terrorism elsewhere. An assessment of the “security situation” led to the change, and the flights are now set to resume.
