Kerry Lands in Tel Aviv to Push for Cease-Fire

Secretary of State John Kerry landed in Tel Aviv Wednesday for talks with leaders in a bid to halt the deadly fighting in Gaza, NBC News reported. He will travel to Jerusalem and the West Bank and is expected to meet UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Palestinian Authority President Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to discuss options for a long-lasting settlement as well as a humanitarian cease-fire. Kerry's flight into the city’s Ben-Gurion airport on an Air Force jet happens one day after the FAA instructed U.S. commercial airlines not to fly there.
