Chants of “democracy” and “this government is criminal” ring through Ben Gurion’s arrival hall.
As they clear protesters from inside the airport terminal, police allegedly asked demonstrators to remove their Israeli flags.
“He told me that I need to leave because of my flag,” says protester Yariv, to a senior officer.
A group of junior officers had tried to escort him out of the terminal.
“It’s an illegal order – this is the Israeli flag,” he tells the police.
Yariv ultimately agrees to a police request to leave the area.
