Two Israeli police officers monitor visitors from incoming flights at the arrivals hall of Ben-Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv, as passengers exit passport control and customs.

The Israel Police ratcheted down visible security at Ben-Gurion International Airport a notch overnight Thursday, after Israel gave foreign carriers a blacklist of close to 400 suspected hostile, pro-Palestinian activists headed here on flights.

“Due to statements of pro-Palestinian radicals to arrive on commercial flights from abroad to disrupt the order and confront security forces at friction points, it was decided to refuse their entry in accordance with our authority according to the Law of Entry to Israel 1952,” the letter read. “In light of the above-mentioned, you are required not to board them on your flights to Israel. Failure to comply with this directive would result in a delay on the flight and their return on the same flight,” the warning read, according to The Jerusalem Post.
