Ben Gurion Airport, Israel's main international airport, halted all arriving and departing flights between 7:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning in advance of a 72-hour cease-fire that began at 8:00 a.m. between Israel and Hamas.  

19 flights were delayed due to the decision.

A few minutes before the cease-fire came into effect, Hamas unleashed a barrage of rocket fire on various regions in Israel. No rockets landed at Ben Gurion.
