‘Europe hasn’t barred flights to Israel’

As the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) reevaluates its ban on flights to and from Israel in the wake of a rocket attack near Ben Gurion Airport, Mark Gallagher, no. 2 in the EU mission to Israel, says the EU — unlike the US — has not issued a travel advisory against Israel.

Europe’s airline authority has not barred flights to Israel, unlike the FAA, he says.

He adds that Europe “does not want Hamas” running Gaza, and that it will have no contact with the organization unless it renounces terrorism.
