Lufthansa, Air Berlin to resume flights to Tel Aviv

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German airlines Lufthansa ( LHAG.DE ) and Air Berlin ( AB1.DE ) said they will resume flights to Israel on Saturday July 26, lifting a ban imposed in response to fears that rockets being fired from the Gaza strip could pose a threat to aircraft.

WHO seeks humanitarian corridor to evacuate Gaza wounded

GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organisation (WHO) called on Friday for a humanitarian corridor to be set up in Gaza to allow aid workers to evacuate the wounded and bring in life-saving medicines. Even during wartime, belligerents are obligated under international humanitarian law to ensure that people are able to reach medical care in safety, the WHO and Red Cross said. Yet some sick and injured in Gaza are dying because of a lack of access to ambulances or health facilities, or the inability to leave the enclave for specialised treatment, the agencies said #facebook #Japan #Brazil #Technology #Israel #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico
