Around 200 pro-Palestinian activists were denied entry to Israel or were prevented from boarding flights to the country as part of an "aerial flotilla," Israel Radio reported on Friday.

Fifty pro-Palestinian activists on Friday morning arrived at the Lufthansa terminal at Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport hoping to board a flight to Israel, and then refused to leave the terminal after they were denied from boarding the plane, Israel Radio reported.

The German airline refused to all them to board the flight to Israel via Frankfurt after the activists' names appeared on a blacklist submitted by Israeli authorities.

Olivia Zemour, leader of the EuroPalestine organization that is arranging the "aerial flotilla," said that the blacklist includes the names of 347 activists.
