Strike in Israel affecting Tel Aviv airport

Several strikes have been called for today in Israel, affecting airports, ports, transport systems, hospitals and other sectors. The strikes could affect flights departing from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport. The strike was called on Monday by the country’s largest trade union grouping and could paralyse large sectors of Israel’s economy. Tens of thousands are expected to be affected by the flight changes.

The strikes could affect flights departing from Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport, with some sources confirming the possibility of flight departures being cancelled, although the airport’s website currently shows only some flight delays. The strike could paralyse large sectors of the Israeli economy.

Before you travel, you should check with your travel or airline company for up-to-date information.

In the past, incidents have taken place in Tel Aviv, Be’er Sheva, Hadera, Jerusalem and the Old City (especially in and around the Damascus Gate, Herod’s Gate, Lion’s Gate, and the Chain Gate), Nablus, Jenin, and Hebron, as well as at Israeli checkpoints, close to settlement outposts, and in the vicinity of Palestinian refugee centers. You should take extra precaution when visiting Hebron or Palestinian refugee camps that have previously seen violent clashes (we advise against visiting the camps in Jenin and Nablus unless absolutely necessary), settlements, and settlement outposts that have seen recent violent incidents (such as those near Beit El, Homesh, Shilo, Evyatar, etc.), and avoid visiting these places after dark. Before visiting these regions, you should check the local news to see if there have been any recent clashes.
