U.S. bans Israel flights, citing rocket attack

(CNN) - The Federal Aviation Administration has told U.S. airlines that they are prohibited from flying to or from Israel's Ben Gurion Airport for up to 24 hours.

"The notice was issued in response to a rocket strike which landed approximately one mile" from the airport Tuesday morning, the FAA said.

The suspension comes amid ongoing conflict between Israel and militants in Gaza. The Israeli military said at least 41 rockets were fired from the Palestinian territory toward Israel on Tuesday.
