    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV/GAZA, JULY 24 - Brazil has recalled its ambassador from Israel following the operation in Gaza. ''The Brazilian government considers the escalating violence unacceptable'', said a statement quoted by Israeli media. ''We firmly condemn the disproportionate use of force by Israel in Gaza''.

    Egyptian airline Air Sinai, controlled by Egypt Air, the only carrier connecting Egypt with Israel, has suspended flights to Tel Aviv indefinitely ''due to the dangerous situation'' in the area, according to airport sources in Cairo.

    The move forced Israel's ambassador to Cairo, Haim Corey, together with nine embassy officials, to travel to Tel Aviv through Amman, in Jordan, the sources added.

    The decision comes as the US federal aviation authority lifted a ban on US flights to Tel Aviv.

    Meanwhile reports said five members of the same family Abu Eita, were killed last night at the Jabalya refugee camp by an Israeli strike. Twenty other people were injured. (ANSAmed)
