U.S. ends ban on flights into Israel's Ben Gurion Airport
Washington (CNN)July 23rd -- The Federal Aviation
Administration removed its ban on U.S. passenger planes flying to and
from Tel Aviv Wednesday night, a day-and-a-half after stopping all the
flights citing security concerns.
Israeli officials have
been lobbying Washington to reverse its decision which was put in place
after a Hamas rocket struck close to the airport on Tuesday. Other
international airlines followed suit, canceling many flights to Israel's
Ben Gurion International Airport in the last two days.
Now that the ban is
lifted, the three U.S. airlines that fly to Israel -- Delta, United and
US Airways -- will need to decide when they will resume flights.

Female reservists called up in unprecedented numbers
Operation Protective Edge poses unique challenges to the thousands of female reservists, among them pregnant women and mothers
Some 60,000 IDF reservists have been called up
to serve in Operation Protective Edge so far. Many are parents leaving
families behind at home – but not all are fathers.
to the IDF Spokesman who would not release exact figures, the thousands
of women currently serving in reserves are a higher percentage than in
any previous IDF operation. They serve in a variety of capacities, but
especially in combat support in the Home Front Command, Intelligence,
the Air Force and field operations.
While it is never easy for anyone to drop everything and leave home, receiving a “tzav 8,”
an emergency call to service, poses unique challenges to the currently
active female reservists, among them pregnant women and mothers.

draft, which includes the establishment of an international commission

law by Israel. The draft does not mention Hamas.
Israeli lobbying with the Council's member states to prevent the
meeting taking place, the Palestinians managed to get the signatures

additional Western states, including Australia and Canada, are expected
to oppose the draft. However, the Palestinians are believed to have a
majority. (Barak Ravid)
