European airlines Air France, Lufthansa suspend all flights to Tel Aviv over safety concerns

BERLIN - Germany and France's largest airlines Lufthansa and Air France say they're suspending all flights to Tel Aviv over safety concerns amid the increasing violence.

Lufthansa said Tuesday evening that it was suspending all Tel Aviv flights for 36 hours, including those operated by subsidiaries Germanwings, Austrian Airlines and Swiss. The company says it made the decision as a precaution to protect the safety of its passengers and crews.

Air France says it was suspending its flights until further notice for the same reason.

Air France says its security department continues to monitor local developments in Israel.

Palestinian militants have fired more than 2,000 rockets toward Israel. Several heading toward the area of Ben-Gurion Airport have been intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome defence system.
