FAA Lifts Ban On Flights In And Out Of Tel Aviv

(Washington, DC) -- The FAA is lifting its flight restrictions on U.S. airlines from flying into or out of Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport. The ban was put in place two days ago over concerns about rocket fire from Hamas militants getting close to the Tel Aviv airport. The FAA says its lifting the ban after a security assessment. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg blasted the original order, calling the restrictions a mistake that "hands Hamas an undeserved victory." Bloomberg flew into Ben Gurion Airport Wednesday, tweeting he was there "to show support for Israel's right to defend itself."
