The Federal Aviation Administration extended its prohibition Wednesday against U.S. flights to Israel for a second 24 hours, a day after a missile fell within a mile of the Tel Aviv airport.

"The agency is working closely with the government of Israel to review the significant new information they have provided and determine whether potential risks to U.S. civil aviation are mitigated so the agency can resolve concerns as quickly as possible," FAA said in a statement.
