Dermer defends US flights to Israel

Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer speaks to American news outlet CNN, saying he thinks it’s safe to fly to Israel and that he’s sure flights from the US will resume shortly.

“From what I understand, the FAA decision was a procedural decision,” Dermer says in an interview with CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.”

“I’m confident that once our FAA and your FAA meet, and they understand the situation, they’ll resume those flights, because the airport is very well protected,” he says.
