Royal Jordanian Airlines has cancelled flights to Ben Gurion International Airport as a precaution due to the current security situation, the carrier said.

It has been a full month since Royal Jordanian flew its regular route to Tel Aviv, and the carrier only resumed its normal schedule this week due to concerns over rocket fire from Gaza.

Hamas terrorists warned commercial arline carriers not to fly to Israel Thursday, saying it was planning to target Ben Gurion International Airport with missile fire. However, there has been no rocket fire directed at the airport thus far.

Security has been increased in accordance with the current situation, and flights are continuing to take off and land on schedule with no disruptions of the routine.
