At the rally outside of the main terminal at Ben Gurion Airport, police grab a man around his neck as they push some demonstrators within the designated protest area.

It’s not clear why police are using force against the protesters.

Channel 12 shows the police trying to clear access routes for arriving passengers to exit the terminal on buses.

More and more trains are arriving with protesters, it reports, with crowds now far larger than at last week’s airport protests.

The police officer in charge at the airport tells Channel 12 that the situation is under control.
