U.S. AIRLINES SUSPEND FLIGHTS TO ISRAEL   Leave a comment

1372083460000-AP-Earns-Delta-1306241019_16_9_rx408_c720x405

TEL AVIV, Israel | DMN — Several U.S. airlines suspended flights to Israel on Tuesday because of security concerns, with one company specifically citing a rocket attack near Tel Aviv.  Delta Air Lines and American Airlines both told DMN they suspended service to Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv. US Airways made the same decision according to the Israel Airport Authority. Citing “reports of a rocket or associated debris” near the airport, Delta said it suspended service between its hub in New York and Tel Aviv “to ensure the safety and security of our customers and employees.” Israel has said militants from Gaza have been launching rockets into the country for days, part of an ongoing military conflict between Israel and the Palestinian territory.

One immediate effect: Delta Flight 468, which left New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport with 273 passengers, diverted Tuesday to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport instead of heading to Tel Aviv as scheduled, the airline said. “Delta continues to work closely with U.S. and other government resources to monitor the situation,” the airline said. The Israel Airport Authority said the airport was safe, and called on the U.S. airlines to return to routine flight schedules at Tel Aviv.

Delta said it continues to work closely with U.S. and other government resources to monitor the situation. The FAA announced recently that carriers have voluntarily agreed not to operate in the airspace near the Russian-Ukraine border following the recent downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet shot down over Ukraine. The airline said all 298 people on board were killed. “There is no reason that American carriers should stop flying to Israel and thus give a prize to terror,” he said.

 

UPDATE:

The FAA has told U.S. airlines that they are prohibited from flying to or from Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport for a period of up to 24 hours. “The notice was issued in response to a rocket strike which landed approximately one mile from” the airport on Tuesday morning, the FAA said.  The suspensions come a day after the U.S. State Department asked Americans to consider deferring nonessential travel to Israel and the West Bank. Monday’s travel warning reaffirmed existing guidance against any travel to Gaza, which the State Department says “is under the control of Hamas, a foreign terrorist organization.” The department urged U.S. citizens already in Gaza to depart immediately. Visitors to Israel should familiarize themselves with the nearest bomb shelters in case of attack, and should avoid areas of Israel near Gaza due to the possibility of attacks from Gaza “with little or no warning,” the warning says.

REPORTERS NOTEBOOK: ‘EXCITING’ DRUG FLUSHES OUT HIV   Leave a comment

_76146215_c0200994-hiv,_artwork-spl

Scientists say they have made an “exciting” step towards curing HIV by forcing the virus out of hiding. HIV can become part of someone’s DNA and lie dormant for decades, making a cure impossible. Early stage research in six people, reported at the AIDS 2014 conference, shows that low-dose chemotherapy can awaken the virus. Experts said it was a promising start, but it was unlikely the drug would work on its own to cure HIV. Anti-viral drugs can drive HIV down to undetectable levels in the bloodstream, meaning people who are HIV-positive can have a near-normal life expectancy. But there is problem. HIV can incorporate its DNA into our own, where it lies beyond the reach of drugs and the immune system – it is known as the HIV reservoir.

When drug treatment stops, the virus can leap out of the reservoir and renew its assault. International research is aimed at flushing the virus out of its reservoirs. A team at Aarhaus University in Demark tried using a chemotherapy drug, romidepsin, which is used in lymphoma. Six HIV patients with undetectable levels of the virus were enrolled into trial. They each received a reduced dose of romidepsin once a week for three weeks. There was a noticeable jump in viral levels in the blood in five of the patients.

_76146260_m0500519-coloured_tem_of_hiv_viruses_budding_from_host_cell-spl

One of the scientists involved, Dr Ole Sogaard, told the BBC: “Every step forward is always exciting, and I think this is quite important.” He said there had been a lot of skepticism about the drug being potent enough. “We’ve shown it is possible to kick the virus out of the cells, the next step is to actually kill the cells. “The trial now moves into a new phase which combines the romidepsin with something to enhance the immune system and in our case this is an HIV vaccine.” Side-effects were those normally associated with chemotherapy, including fatigue.

There are still many challenges ahead. The team cannot say what proportion of cells hiding HIV are being activated by romidepsin. Another looming question is which reservoirs are being successfully targeted. HIV can hide in immune cells in the blood, but there are bigger reservoirs in the gut and central nervous systems and it is not clear whether they are activated by the blood-based chemotherapy. “We know it’s a step forwards, but we don’t know how big, it might just be a single step or it could be a great leap forward,” Dr Sogaard added. Romidepsin works by “relaxing” tight coiled up bundles of DNA. This exposes the hidden HIV genetic code and leads to the production of new viruses.

Dr Andrew Freedman, a reader in infectious diseases at Cardiff University, told the BBC: “As a proof of concept it does look promising. “The search for a cure is very much on, it’s not going to be easy and it’s unlikely a single drug like this would be sufficient. “There’s a lot of doubt it would be enough to deplete the reservoir completely. “Most people think a single approach will not be enough, a drug like this perhaps needs to be combined with vaccines or even gene-therapy.”

ISRAEL HITS HUNDREDS OF TARGETS IN GAZA…SOLDIER CONFIRMED MISSING   Leave a comment

GAZA CITY | DMN — Israel continued to pound Gaza overnight, including hitting 100 targets in Shujai’iya, the scene of the most intense fighting of the conflict, as the Israeli military confirmed that one of its soldiers was missing. Hamas claimed on Sunday that it had captured an Israeli soldier during the intense battle in Shujai’iya. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) named the missing soldier as Sergeant Oron Shaul, 21, a combat soldier of the Golani brigade. Hamas and Islamic Jihad reportedly agreed to a five-hour pause in the fighting. However, Haaretz quoted senior Israeli officials as saying a humanitarian ceasefire was “not on our agenda right now”.

As diplomatic efforts to broker a halt to the conflict continued in Egypt, the Israeli military said its forces had struck almost 3,000 targets in Gaza over the past two weeks – almost half since the start of the ground offensive four days ago. Twenty-seven soldiers have been killed in fighting, the IDF said in a statement. The Palestinian death toll in Gaza was climbing steadily towards 600, a third of whom are children, according to the UN children’s agency Unicef. As the fighting continued, John Kerry, the US secretary of state, was due to meet the UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, and Egyptian mediators in Cairo. Barack Obama said on Monday that Kerry had been authorised to do “everything he can to help facilitate a cessation of hostilities”, in a sign that international diplomacy had been galvanised by the weekend carnage in Shujai’iya.

Kerry described Israel’s military offensive as an “appropriate and legitimate effort” to defend itself but added that the consequences were of deep concern. He pledged that the US would provide $47m (£28m) in humanitarian aid to help Palestinians. He said: “Only Hamas now needs to make the decision to spare innocent civilians from this violence.” Seven people, including four women from one family, were killed in an air strike early on Tuesday, according to Gaza paramedics. On Monday, 25 members of the Abu Jame’ family were killed when Israeli forces struck a house near Khan Younis, apparently without warning, the Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem said. A Hamas militant was also killed.

 

 

The dead included 18 children and five women, three of whom were pregnant. The family was eating iftar, the meal that breaks the Ramadan fast. B’Tselem called for an immediate ceasefire, saying: “Horrific developments in Gaza have reached intolerable heights: Israel is bombing houses with people in them, entire families have been buried under rubble, and streets lie in ruins. Hundreds have been killed so far, dozens in the last 24 hours only, many of them women and children. The number of refugees is rising: tens of thousands of people have nowhere to go and no safe haven.”

Ten Israeli human rights organisations have written to the attorney general to raise concerns about grave violations of international law in the conflict. They questioned the legality of Sunday’s operation in Shujai’iya, “in particular, the potential violation of the fundamental principles of the laws of war, specifically the principle of distinguishing between combatants and civilians”. Israeli officials continued to say that Hamas was using civilians as human shields, and it was giving warnings to residents of air strikes. A senior officer said there had been a significant decline in rocket fire from Gaza over the past few days, and that the scope of the rocket fire had decreased by 30% since the beginning of the ground operation.

Gaza City air strike

In Cairo, Ban held talks on Monday with the Egyptian president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, and the head of the Arab League. Egypt’s proximity to Gaza, its peace treaty with Israel and good relations with the western-backed Palestinian Authority in the West Bank have made it the focus of attempts to defuse the crisis, though its relations with Hamas – which it sees as an offshoot of the banned Muslim Brotherhood – are hostile. Hamas rejected Cairo’s original ceasefire proposal last week, though a senior official said Egypt might be willing to alter its stance. “Egypt does not mind adding some of Hamas’s conditions provided that all involved parties approve,” the official told Reuters. Hamas is demanding an end to the blockade of Gaza, an end to hostilities, opening the border to Egypt, the release of prisoners held by Israel and other conditions in exchange for a truce.

Ismail Haniyeh, the former Hamas prime minister, claimed that Israeli forces were being beaten in Gaza. “The Palestinian resistance will meet the demands and expectations of the Palestinian people,” he said on Monday evening, adding that Hamas’s conditions were “the minimum demands” for any truce. “Our people’s sacrifices are heading for triumph,” he said in a pre-recorded TV broadcast. “We see the al-Qassam Brigades and the Jerusalem Brigades and all resistance factions beating the enemy and attack him again and again, under the earth and sea. The ground operation is a declaration of failure on the part of the enemy aerial war against Gaza.”
