Delta Airlines Plane Bound for Tel Aviv turns back as Rocket Lands Near Airport | All U.S. Flights to Israel Cancelled




A Delta Airlines Boeing 747 aircraft from New York which was bound for Tel Aviv, turned around at the last minute on Tuesday after a rocket reportedly landed near Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport.

In the aftermath of the incident, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on Tuesday issued a ban prohibiting all American air carriers from making flights to Israel “for a period of up to 24 hours,” Daily Mail reports. 

The agency said it would continue to monitor the situation, and that “updated instructions will be provided to U.S. airlines as soon as conditions permit, but no later than 24 hours” from the time the ban was enforced.
