A Syrian state-owned newspaper announced that Israel should expect more protests along their shared border after a protest on Sunday resulted in 23 deaths.

Israel accused Syria of provoking the protests, organized to commemorate the Naksa or the Arab loss in the 1967 Six Day War, to distract attention from the ongoing protests raging against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's administration.

Over 600,000 Palestinian and Syrian refugees will attend the prospective protest, ready to return to their former homes in what is now Israel's Golan Heights, according to Tishreen, the state-run newspaper and mouthpiece of the Assad regime.

Last Sunday, protestors were shot at by Israeli Defense Force soldiers when they approached the fence marking the ceasefire line between Syria and Israel.

Earlier this year, at a May 15 protest commemorating the Nakba, the 1948 creation of the state of Israel, protestors on Syrian and Lebanese soil also attempted to bypass their respective borders with Israel.

Ten Lebanese protestors and four Syrians were shot and killed by Israeli Defense Forces.

After the May 15, Lebanon declared the border with Israel a closed military zone before the scheduled protests last Sunday. Syria made no moves to prevent protestors from approaching the border.
