Israelis wait to board at Ben Gurion International airport. AP PhotoPalestinian Islamist movement Hamas said July 25 it fired three rockets at Tel Aviv airport, a day after US and some European airlines had resumed flights after a two-day suspension.
"At 11:45 am (0845 GMT), the Qassam Brigades bombarded Ben Gurion airport with three M75 rockets," a statement from Hamas's armed wing said.
EU and US authorities had ordered all commercial flights suspended after a rocket struck near runways on Tuesday, effectively shutting Israeli air links to the outside world in what Hamas claimed as a "victory" in a deadly conflict now in its 18th day.
