"Syrian media sources confirmed that Israeli soldiers shot and killed on Sunday 24 protesters who gathered on the Syrian side of the border of the Israeli occupied Golan Heights marking the Naksa Day, while at least 350 were injured.
Thousands of Palestinian refugees and supporters marched near the border marking the Naksa, the day Israel the illegally arrested the rest of Palestine in 1967.
The protesters were demanding their right to return to their homeland when the Israeli forces opened fire at them. At least eight of the wounded are in serious conditions." Salem News
The original source for the news in this story appears to be the "Jewish Telegraphic Agency." (JTA)
It has to be noted that the Syrian government has killed at least 1,500 Syrians in its current campaign of repression
Nevertheless, the willingness of Bibi's government to have its infantry use ball ammunition against unarmed Palestinian marchers is reprehensible. They are climbing the Golan border fences? OK Round them up and send them back at the Quneitra crossing on the Golan Heights. 22 killed? Maybe.
"At a march organized by a number of Israeli center-left groups, around 5,000 protesters marched through the streets of downtown Tel Aviv Saturday night calling for a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.
Participants in the march and rally included non-governmental organizations Peace Now and Gush Shalom, and political parties Meretz, Labor and the Derech faction of the Kadima party." Salem News
This is the bigger story. 5,000? Really? What will the Israeli government do if this happens again? Will they use the gray uniformed Border Police. This force is heavily Druze. They are often used against Palestinian demonstrators since this Arabic speaking minority does not identify with the other Palestinians and does not hesitate to beat and shoot them. pl
