Central police district chief Cmdr. Bentsi Sao said Sunday that the bulk of flights carrying "flytilla" activists are expected to land between the hours of 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Most of the activists who intended on coming to Israel as part of the flytilla were denied boarding by airlines, he said.

Thus far seven activists are in the process of being returned to their points of origin and ten activists are being asked by the Interior Ministry to accept an arrangement according to which they will be placed on the next flight to their point of embarkation.

Police sent a list of 500 activists to foreign airlines saying they would be denied entry to Israel and most of those on the list were not allowed to board their flights, Sao said.
