Authorities have decreased the amount of forces operating at Ben Gurion Airport overnight Thursday after being notified that the number of pro-Palestinian activists set to arrive in an "air flotilla" will be smaller than initially expected, Army Radio reported.

According to the report, an undisclosed number of activists were prevented from departing from European airports as a result of a "black list" which Israel had sent to local authorities. The list details the names of activists which may potentially attempt to cause provocations.

Police forces are expected to increase in the airport on Friday morning.
