Participants are also set to visit the Mossad intelligence Centre and Police headquarters and to get an insight into Israel’s space programme during the four-day Israel: Behind the Scenes tour.

British Ambassador Matthew Gould, Labor leader Isaac Herzog and Mark Regev, spokesman for the Prime Minister, will also speak to the group.

ZF director Alan Aziz said: “There is an incredible variety of things to see and do in Israel, and as the UK’s leading grassroots Israel advocacy organisation, we feel the best way to reveal the truth of Israel is to showcase some of the most interesting of these  to our supporters.”
