The site of direct rocket hits, Tel Aviv was not spared by Hamas attacks over the weekend. On Monday, a CNN reporter on the ground there could hear loud booms almost constantly. While airlines canceled flights to and from the airport since the start of the conflict, the US State Department has "been in conversation with various (airline) carriers to encourage them to consider resuming travel in and out of Israel," spokesperson Matthew Miller said Tuesday.
