Despite Hamas Threats, Ben Gurion Airport Operating as Usual


Hundreds of passengers have arrived so far this morning to Ben Gurion International Airport, as Hamas's threats to fire rockets at the airport as of 6 a.m. this morning fell flat.

Hamas's "military wing" had warned foreign airlines on Wednesday against flying into Tel Aviv, threatening to step up its six-week conflict with Israel after firing more than 100 rockets on Israeli civilians and pulling out of peace talks.
