Turkish Airlines extends suspension of Israel flights

Turkey’s national carrier has extended its suspension of direct flights to Tel Aviv for another day for security reasons due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, Turkey’s communications minister says.

“We had halted the flights to Israel yesterday, now we decided to extend the suspension for another 24 hours because the risk continues,” Lutfi Elvan tells reporters.

Major US, European and Canadian airlines cancelled flights to and from Israel yesterday, after a rocket fired from Gaza struck near its main international airport in Tel Aviv.
