Pro-Palestinian "hooligan" activists who will try to provoke and disturb the peace in the expected fly-in set for Ben-Gurion Airport on Friday will be turned back and deported to their home countries, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Tuesday.

"The same hooligans who tried to break the law and disrupt the peace will not be allowed into Israel and will return to their home countries," Aharonovitch said.

"In the coming days hundreds of radical activists from Europe are expected to arrive in order to cause provocations, to demonstrate illegally and to damage our legitimacy in our country," he continued.
