Airlines halt flights over Israel because of missile threats

The FAA issued the order for U-S air carriers to halt flights into Israel for 24 hours. United, which has two daily flights to Tel Aviv, Delta and US Airways have all suspended operations to Tel Aviv until further notice. The aviation administration issued the ban after a rocket landed near the Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv this morning.
