Netanyahu said Israel will strongly to rallies

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he gave security forces "clear instructions" to "act with restraint, but firmly enough" to a possible influx of demonstrators to its borders on Sunday. "Like any other country in the world, Israel will guard and defend its borders. So my instructions are clear: to act with restraint, but firmly enough to protect our borders, our villages and our citizens," he told a conference on High tech in Jerusalem, according to a statement from his office.

Following the success of the actions of the last day 15 in commemoration of the Nakba, when hundreds of demonstrators in Lebanon, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank went to the boundary with Israel and dozens managed to infiltrate, pro-Palestinian groups have called for repeat acts on Sunday, during the "Naksa" the Israeli occupation began in 1967.

Netanyahu linked to "Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas" to "provocations" the anniversary of the Nakba, which killed fifteen people, ten in the Lebanese border, one in northern Gaza and four in the Golan Heights (Syrian territory occupied by Israel), where about 180 protesters managed to cross the separation fence and into the area controlled by Israel.

The Israeli army is prepared, therefore, to meet on Sunday to a new influx of demonstrators, including Palestinian refugees. "We are ready for anything that might happen," said an army source who declined to be identified. The military said the Israel Defense Forces have been in the past two weeks "to monitor the northern and southern borders of the country and assessing the situation in Judea and Samaria (the biblical names for the occupied Palestinian West Bank territory)." The fence has been repaired and reinforced with barbed wire and have established more checkpoints.

The borders with Syria and Lebanon will be reinforced with troops on Friday and Saturday, especially in areas where there is greater potential for friction, reported today the newspaper Haaretz. In preparation is an emphasis on intelligence tasks, adds the newspaper. The Executive has warned that Netanyahu responsible governments in Beirut and Damascus if repeated the events of May 15, news agency said Israeli Ynet.
