Israel has refused entry to dozens of activists who arrived in Tel Aviv as part of an international campaign dubbed 'Welcome to Palestine'. Nine Israeli activists have also been arrested. The organizers say they'd planned peaceful activities like planting trees in the West Bank and have criticized Israel for over-reacting. RT gets the details from Paula Slier in Tel Aviv.
Pro-Palestinian activists who organised a "flytilla" to Israel in order to travel to the West Bank and demonstrate against Israeli policies have been arrested after arriving at Ben Gurion international airport.
Many members of the Welcome to Palestine campaign had already been prevented by authorities across Europe from boarding flights bound for Israel.
