JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Some 300 flights to and from Ben Gurion International Airport have been cancelled in the wake of a volcano eruption in Iceland.
As of Monday, about 48,000 people travelling between Israel and Europe have been stranded, including at least 20,000 Israelis.
The ash on Monday also for the first time prevented a flight from North America from taking off for Israel, Haaretz reported.
