NYON, Switzerland (AP) - UEFA has lifted the ban on Israeli teams playing European matches at home that was imposed during the recent Israel-Hamas conflict.

The UEFA decision on Thursday comes three weeks after the end of the latest Gaza war, the third in five years.

It means Israeli teams can resume hosting 2016 European Championship qualifiers.

The country has no teams left in European club competitions this season.
