Egypt’s Air Sinai cancelled its flight on Monday to Israel’s Ben Gurion International airport although the facility was operating as normal, an airport official says

The Egyptian carrier operates two flights per week, on Mondays and Thursdays, and it was unclear whether the flight on Thursday will take off, the official says.

Monday’s flight was cancelled due to the situation in Israel, the official said without elaborating.

Several airlines including American, Russian and European had cancelled their flights to Israel for two days after a rocket fired by Hamas struck a neighborhood to the north of Ben Gurion airport last Tuesday.

These airlines resumed their flights two days later on Thursday.
