Israel says no reason to cancel flights after rocket fire

July 22, 2014 10:49 P.M. (Updated: July 22, 2014 10:49 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Israel said there was no reason to cancel flights after a rocket fired from Gaza crashed just kilometers from its main airport Tuesday, prompting some airlines to suspend services.

"Transport Minister Yisrael Katz this evening called American companies to explain to them that the take-off and landing at (Tel Aviv's) Ben Gurion airport presented no security problem for the aircraft and the passengers," the Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement, adding "there is no reason for American companies to cancel their flights."
