Tourism Ministry: Rockets Have Not Deterred Visitors

According to Israel's Tourism Ministry, there has not been a significant drop in tourism due to operation "Pillar of Defense" or the rockets being launched from Gaza towards Israel.

According to the ministry, "More than 100,000 tourists are currently touring the country. To date, the ministry has not detected any departures en masse. The tourism sites in Tel Aviv, Nazareth and Jerusalem are bustling with tourists. There have been some cancellations in recent days but not at a level that would suggest a trend."
