Palestinian Protesters Trying to Storm Israeli Border Meet Armed IDF Soldiers – 6 Dead
Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all?
Palestinian protesters from Syria tried to storm the Israeli border again today.
This time they met armed Israeli soldiers. 6 protesters were killed.
YNet News reported:
Despite reports suggesting the mass rallies planned in Syria and Lebanon to mark “Naksa Day” – the 44th anniversary of the Arab “downfall” in the Six Day War – were cancelled, some 500 people gathered Sunday on the Syrian side of the northern border.
According to reports, around noon, about 150 protesters made their way to the international border fence and began stoning IDF troops and attempting to cut through the fence.
IDF forces called on the demonstrators to cease their progress, before firing warning shots in mid-air. Once those were ignored as well, the troops fired at the lower extremities of several major dissidents inflaming the crowds.
