From Dov Lipman: AIRPORT CLOSURE EXTENDED I am sad and angry to report that the government has extended the airport closure until March 6.

I was part of an effort to prevent and then to reverse this decision that went late into last night but that effort has failed.

We will continue to try to convince the government to change its mind on this but for now all Israelis must receive permission from the special committee to travel back to Israel or to leave Israel.

The government has agreed to allow for more flights to and from Israel to accommodate those who receive approval and also to be more lenient in the approval process including allowing for more people making aliyah to enter.
