FAA extends ban on US flights in, out of Tel Aviv

FAA extends ban on US flights in, out of Tel Aviv story image

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The FAA has extended its ban on U.S. flights going into and coming out of Israel's main airport.

European Airlines have also stopped all service to and from Tel Aviv and are keeping planes out of Israeli airspace.

The ban comes after a rocket landed a mile from the airport Tuesday.

Israeli officials claim it's safe to fly there, and that by avoiding Tel Aviv, the airlines are handing a victory to the terrorists.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry took a military flight into the city, meeting with the U.N. Secretary General and the Palestinian President.

"We need to find a way forward that works, and it's not violence," Kerry said.

Secretary Kerry said the U.S. is grateful to the 30,000 Israelis who lined the streets of Jerusalem, during the funeral procession of American-Israeli soldier Max Steinberg.

The Los Angeles native was killed in battle on Sunday.

So far, nearly 700 people have died in more than two weeks of fighting.
