U.S. halts flights to Israel as Mideast fighting continues

The airline cancellations came after a rocket crashed into a house in Yehud, a town about a mile from Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. Tel Aviv is about 53 miles north of the Gaza Strip, where Israeli troops have moved in to root out Hamas militants who have fired hundreds of rockets into Israel in recent weeks.
