Hamas Fires More Rockets at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport


Hamas said it fired three rockets at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport on Friday, an apparent bid to cripple operations there. There was no word of damage at the site, but its passenger hall emptied at the sound of sirens. It was the second such salvo in as many days.

A Hamas rocket intercepted near the airport on Tuesday prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to halt American commercial flights to Israel's main international gateway. Some European carriers followed suit. The FAA's ban was lifted late Wednesday.
