are prohibited from flying to or from Israel's Ben Gurion Airport for a period of up to 24 hours.
"The notice was issued in response to a rocket strike which landed approximately one mile" from the airport on Tuesday morning, the FAA said.
At least two U.S. airlines had already suspended flights to Israel on Tuesday prior to the FAA notice, with one company specifically citing a rocket attack near Tel Aviv.
Delta Air Lines and American Airlines both told CNN they suspended service to Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv. The American Airlines flights in question -- between Philadelphia and Ben Gurion -- are operated by US Airways, said American spokesman Casey Norton.
The Israel Airport Authority told CNN that the U.S. companies made the decisions on their own, and urged them to reconsider, saying that the airport was safe. "There is no reason that American carriers should stop flying to Israel and thus give a prize to terror," he said.
