Dozens of police officers were deployed Wednesday in the Ben-Gurion International Airport as two airplanes, one from New York and one from Moscow, set to land land purportedly carrying activists taking part in the "aerial flotilla" to Gaza.

Earlier Wednesday Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu toured the airport with Police Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino and Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, saying that Israel would prevent the entry of "provocateurs and trouble-makers into its territory."

One protester, speaking to Army Radio, said that he and other protesters were planning on arriving to Ben-Gurion Airport as tourists destined for the West Bank.
