IOF deploys large force along Arab borders ahead of Naksa Day protests

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Israel occupation forces (IOF) has deployed  extra forces along the border with Syria and Lebanon as events marking the anniversary of the 1967 occupation of Palestine draw nearer, Haaretz reported on Monday.

The move comes to avoid a repeat of what happened as Palestinian refugees marked Nakba Day on 15 May when some 15 Arabs were shot dead by Israeli forces.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians have joined a Facebook-organized campaign calling for the Naksa Day protests to mark the 1967 occupation of the rest of Palestine.

After the Nakba Day protests, pro-Palestinian activists began gearing to launch a week of peaceful protests and marches to the borders of occupied Palestine by refugees who have been denied return to their homes.
