"After weeks of preparation and planning, we are prepared for the arrival of President Barack Obama," head of operations at the Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

In a special 80-meter area at Ben Gurion Airport, the Israel Defense Forces will mark the start of Obama's three-day trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories with a display of anti-missile defenses, funded partly by the United States.

Some 250 guests, 250 VIPs and 300 journalists from Israel and around the world will attend the official welcoming ceremony at the airport midday Wednesday.
