Air India has canceled its flights to and from Israel following an attack by Palestinian factions in the early hours of Saturday.

The spokesperson for the airline commented on the matter, stating, "Flight AI139 from New Delhi to Tel Aviv on October 7th and the return flight AI140 from Tel Aviv to New Delhi have been canceled to ensure the safety and well-being of our guests and crew."

It's worth noting that Hamas launched thousands of rockets at Israel, with some infiltrating Israeli territory, resulting in dozens of casualties and hundreds of injuries, an incident characterized by Israeli officials as an intelligence failure.

The decision to cancel flights comes amidst heightened tensions and security concerns in the region due to the recent escalation of violence between Palestinian factions and Israel.

Air India's move reflects a commitment to prioritize passenger safety and security during times of regional instability.

The airline will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary to ensure the safety and convenience of its passengers.
