Prime Minister Binyamin Netnyahu and Police Insp.-Gen. Yochanan Danino toured the Ben Gurion International Airport Wednesday morning in preparation for the arrival of hundreds of Gaza activists arriving from Europe this Friday, Army Radio reported.

On Tuesday, Interior Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said “Israel won’t allow...hooligans to infiltrate by air," adding “We will not host law-breakers.”

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

According to the activist, the difference between him and any other tourist visiting Israel is that he and other demonstrators will tell security officials that they plan on visiting Palestinian cities.
