Israel's Main Airports Temporarily Ground Flights Due to Protests

With Holy Week and Easter on the way, tourism in Israel has been virtually shut down.

A series of nationwide protests grew overnight into Monday and reached the airports, with David Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem International Airport temporarily grounding flights, according to ABC News.


The protests have been over the governmental decisions by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was scheduled to reveal his plan to overhaul the judiciary, a move he believed would restore balance to the system of government.
