All international airlines performing flights to Israel have stopped air service with this country for safety reasons due to continued missile strikes from the Gaza Strip, Israel’s state radio Kan reported on Saturday.
According to it, the airlines from the UAE were among the last ones to suspend the flights to Israel.
An exchange of missile strikes between Israel and Palestinian radicals from the Gaza Strip began on May 10. Since then, about 2,300 missiles have been fired from the Gaza Strip upon Israeli cities.
