Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg flew to Israel on Tuesday in protest of the Federation Aviation Administration's decision to halt American flights to and from the country.

On his twitter account, Bloomberg wrote "This evening I will be flying on El Al to Tel Aviv to demonstrate that it is safe to fly in and out of Israel The flight restrictions are a mistake that hands Hamas an undeserved victory and should be lifted immediately."

It is unknown when Bloomberg is expected to land in Israel and what his itinerary will be.
