Market Report Air Force Raid Sends Tel Aviv Stocks Lower

The TA-25 index of blue chips ended the day at 1,176.67 points, a decline of 0.8% as turnover on the TASE reached NIS 1.05 billion. The broader TA-100 index was down almost 1% to 1,047.59.

The Tel Aviv Stock Exchange ended lower Wednesday after reports that Israeli fighter jets attacked targets on the Syrian-Lebanese border, heightening concerns that Israel could be dragged into a conflict with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s beleaguered regime or the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.
