The FAA is barring U.S. airlines from flying into or out of Tel Aviv for the next 24 hours as fighting continues between Israel and Hamas. Earlier today, Delta, American and United all announced that they'd stop flying to Ben Gurion Airport over concerns of rocket fire. The FAA says it can confirm that a rocket landed about a mile from Israel's main international airport earlier today. The agency says it will continue to monitor the situation and let the airlines know when those flights can resume.
