Turkey's Airline Extends Suspension of Flights to Israel

Turkey's national carrier has extended its suspension of direct flights to Tel Aviv for another day for security reasons due to the Gaza conflict between Israel and Hamas, the communications minister said on Wednesday, according to AFP.

"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 was quoted as having told reporters.
