Royal Jordanian Cancels Flights to Ben Gurion Airport

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

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.

Egyptian VP El Baradei Resigns

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Egypt’s interim vice president, Mohamed ElBaradei, resigned today in response to the violent crackdown of security on Islamist protest camps set up in support of deposed president Mohamed Morsi, Reuters reports.

ElBaradei wrote in his resignation letter that “the beneficiaries of what happened today are those who call for violence, terrorism and the most extreme groups.”

“As you know, I saw that there were peaceful ways to end this clash in society, there were proposed and acceptable solutions for beginnings that would take us to national consensus,” he wrote. “It has become difficult for me to continue bearing responsibility for decisions that I do not agree with and whose consequences I fear. I cannot bear the responsibility for one drop of blood.”
