Same for me next week from TLV. Should I create a backup plan or change my plans at this point?

Its already been that long. Took a few days to get large enough for such a disruption. If they would have wanted it to stop they should have stopped it when it started in the airport.

Sounds like most of the protesters fled after a rumor of impending police action.

there are definitely flights landing and taking off based on Airlive.net I wonder what their criteria is for flights leaving and coming.

Flights arriving are not an issue at the moment. Also, transit customers are being allowed to depart HKG. Customers that need to go through immigration have to wait since it's closed.

In general protests are dumb, but this cause really affects hundreds of millions of people, not to mention significant parts of the world economy.
