(CNN) The FAA has told U.S. airlines that they 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 suspended flights to Israel on Tuesday because of security concerns, with one company specifically citing a rocket attack near Tel Aviv.
