Air France said on Friday it would resume flights to Tel Aviv later in the day, the latest major airline to lift a ban on flights to Israel imposed earlier in the week over security concerns.

The airline suspended flights to Tel Aviv on Tuesday after a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed near Ben-Gurion International Airport, Israel's main hub.

German airline Lufthansa said earlier on Friday it was resuming flights to Israel from Saturday.
