...Our sources report that Thursday, some international airlines cancelled flights to Israel. International airline officials told DEBKAfile that security in central Israel is uncertain after Palestinian rockets from Gaza reached the Tel Aviv area. They fear Ben Gurion international airport at Lod may be next.
The sources noted that the landing of a rocket in the sea off Bat Yam posed a serious aviation hazard because it occurred under the flight path of passenger planes bound for and departing Israel. Intense Israeli Air Force activity over Gaza was making commercial flights additionally “hazardous if not impossible,” they said.
Air France was the first to reschedule flights and advise passengers to call in before setting out for their airport of departure.
Like everyone else, I'm keeping up with the liveblogging at Muqata and YWN and praying.
Two notes about Shabbat:
Shabbat under Siege: Plans for Quiet Channel, Special Prayer
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef: Add Chosen Prayers till War's End
We may not be able to have a peaceful Shabbat externally, but we can remain at peace internally knowing that HKB"H is in charge of it all and He's doing everything for our very best, in order to bring the geulah shleimah at long last.
PS: Did you notice that time speeded up again? Watch how quickly developments are occurring now.
