Heavy congestion is reported at the entrance to Ben Gurion Airport as a large convoy of vehicles blocks the area ahead of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to Italy.
Police are on the scene and trying to clear the area, with Hebrew-language media reports saying they have started to issue fines.
Police have said they will impound vehicles abandoned with the intention of hindering the flow of traffic.
Protest heads have specifically called for demonstrators to block roads around Ben Gurion Airport when Netanyahu and his wife are scheduled to depart on their flight to Italy. The premier is set to meet with far-right Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni at the start of his three-day visit to Rome.
