WASHINGTON, D.C. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The FAA has lifted its ban on U.S. flights to Israel.

Late Wednesday, FAA officials made their decision after assessing the security situation in Israel. The FAA originally imposed a 24-hour prohibition Tuesday on flights to Ben Gurion International Airport, in response to a Hamas rocket strike that landed near the airport. The ban was extended through Wednesday.

The agency's ban was criticized by the Israeli Government. Senator Ted Cruz also questioned whether President Obama used the FAA to impose an economic boycott on Israel.
