What the fcuk this has to do with, "Atheism requires as much faith as religion?" I have no idea!JERUSALEM: A rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed near Israel's main airport on Tuesday, wounding one Israeli and prompting at least two American airlines to cancel flights to Israel in a reflection of high anxiety over air travel after last week's attack on a Malaysian jet over Ukraine.
It was the latest blow to Israel on a day when it announced that an Israeli soldier went missing following a deadly battle in the Palestinian territory, where the Israelis are fighting Hamas militants in the third conflict in just over five years.
Palestinian militants have fired more than 2,000 rockets toward Israel, and several heading toward the area of Ben-Gurion Airport have been intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome defense system, but police spokeswoman Luba Samri said Tuesday's landing was the closet to the airport since fighting began on July 8.
The rocket damaged a house and lightly injured one Israeli in Yehud, a Tel Aviv suburb near the airport, Samri said. As a result, Delta Air Lines and US Airlines decided to cancel their scheduled flights to Israel.
Israel's transportation ministry called on the companies to reverse their decision and said it was trying to explain that the airport was "safe for landings and departures."
