Israel Builds Alternative Airport

I've Been Thinking:
Tourism in Israel is up.
This first quarter of 2018 was up 30% over the same period in 2017.
That is very impressive by any standard, especially so while Israel is under the threat of war from Iran and Hezbollah.
Recognizing that Ben Gurion Airport is a high profile target - and that there is a real threat of an attack on the airport from Hezbollah and from terrorists coming from closer to the airport in the West Bank - Israel is re-outfitting and expanding an air force base deep in the Negev desert.
The base is far away from a Hezbollah threat or a West Bank attack. But it is an alternative and, if needed, if there is a crisis, it will be there.
