Israeli airlines and ports have been closed including Port of Ashkelon and Port of Ashdod because of rocket attacks.
Hamas stated that the "Kasan Brigade" fired a 250-kilogram heavy rocket towards the Ramon Airport near Etra, Israel's southernmost port city on the 13th. Currently, many Israeli airlines and ports have been closed including Port of Ashkelon and Port of Ashdod.
In the past few days, serious armed conflicts broke out between Israel and Palestine in the Gaza Strip. Armed personnel in the Gaza Strip fired nearly 2,000 rockets at Israel, causing 8 deaths and more than 100 injuries in the Israel. Israel subsequently launched an air strike to counterattack, killing at least 55 people.
There is no doubt that this crisis has an impact on international logistics and transportation to the Middle East. Due to the war, the operations of local ports and airports have been affected. Because of concerns about the escalation of the situation, many aircraft that originally passed through Israeli airspace will be forced to change their routes to reduce flight risks.
According to a report by the Associated Press on May 12, three largest US airlines have announced the suspension of flights to Israel due to the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestine. An airline spokesperson said that he is closely monitoring the regional situation to decide when to resume flights.
Because the war is a force majeure factor, it is not ruled out that more countries will impose restrictions on aircraft and ships going to Israel in the near future. If there is any cargo shipped to the Middle East in the near future, please pay attention to the local situation.
