Lufthansa suspends flights to Tel Aviv for another 24 hours

German flag carrier Lufthansa said Thursday it would continue to suspend flights to Tel Aviv for another 24 hours over security concerns amid the raging conflict in the Gaza Strip.

"We will resume flights as soon as the protection of the airport is assured in a tangible manner," it said in a statement.

Earlier on Thursday, US airlines lifted their bans on flights to Tel Aviv Ben Gurion International Airport, which were imposed on Tuesday after a rocket fell near the airport, and the European air safety agency also lifted its warning on flights to the Jewish state.
