The U.S. government is banning all flights to and from Israel's main airport in Tel Aviv.
Their reasoning? On Tuesday, a rocket launched by Hamas in Gaza struck just a mile away from Ben Gurion Airport.
Israel is urging the U.S. to reconsider but the White House says it won't overrule the ban.
This comes just days after a Malaysia jet was shot down mid-air over a war zone in eastern Ukraine. All 298 passengers on board were killed.
There are dangerous fly zones all over the world and it might be a surprise to many that passenger jets fly through them daily.
So, why aren't these combat areas off-limits for flights?
