Two pro-Palestinian American activists were denied entry to Israel after they landed at Ben Gurion Airport from Athens overnight Thursday as part of the "air flotilla."

The two told border officials that they planned to take part in the Gaza flotilla, but due to delays, they chose to join the "air flotilla."

As a result, authorities refused to grant them entry and the two were forced to return to Greece.
