PA cancels all flights from Tel Aviv due to Israeli military blockade

PA airlines will suspend all flights to Israel due to the Israeli military blocking the border with Gaza.

The move comes as Israeli authorities closed the border and shut the Israeli-controlled section of the Rafah crossing into Gaza.

Israel has imposed a series of restrictions on the Gaza Strip in response to Hamas rocket attacks from the enclave.

The restrictions include restricting movement between the coastal enclave and the West Bank and the closure of some roads and bridges.

Israel has also imposed a travel ban and curfews on the Strip.

Travel agency PA Travel will stop its services from the Gaza area, the company said on its Facebook page on Wednesday.

PA Travel’s operations will continue as usual and the company will not be accepting new clients from today until the end of the month, it added.

Earlier this month, PA officials suspended all flights between Tel Aviv and Gaza, and Israeli forces closed the Gaza border and cut the crossings into Israel.

The PA has long been concerned about the potential effects of rocket fire from the coastal area.

Israel and Hamas both reject the blockade as illegal and counterproductive.
