Dozens of people were injured when Israeli troops opened fire as a group of demonstrators from Syria tried to break through a border fence at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.
Forty-five people were injured in the incident.
Across the West Bank and Gaza, hundreds took to the streets in demonstrations marking the anniversary of Israel's creation in 1948.
In northern Gaza, at least six people were injured when Israeli soldiers opened fire on a group of young demonstrators approaching the border.
Outside Jerusalem, soldiers fired tear gas and rubber bullets to break up a group of people throwing stones.
Israel had heightened security in anticipation of unrest leading up to Sunday's protests marking "Naqba" - or "the catastrophe." Some activists have called for a new "intifada" - or uprising - against Israel.
I believe that it was Reliapundit, in a prediction written a couple of days ago, who was the first to predict the outbreak of the 'Third Intifada'.
These 'protests' are thinly-veiled proxy attacks organized and funded by Iran, Syria, Egypt and the other 7th-century barbarian extremists.
How's that 'Democracy Movement' working out, Sparky?
