Shalom Sharley, bottom center, of New York, waits in line behind a travel companion, bottom right, at the security checkpoint prior to boarding his United Airlines flight to Tel Aviv at Newark Liberty International Airport, Thursday, July 24, 2014, in Newark, N.J. United Airlines will be the first U.S. carrier to resume flights to Israel after a two-day hiatus caused by combat in the Gaza Strip. The Chicago-based airline says it will resume service to Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv with a 4:45 p.m. eastern flight from Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. A second United flight will leave Newark at 10:50 p.m. eastern. The decision comes hours after the Federal Aviation Administration lifted its ban on U.S. flights in and out of Israel, which the agency had imposed out of concern for the risk of planes being hit by Hamas rockets.
