Israeli forces kill pro-Palestinian protesters


Israeli security forces have killed at least 20 protesters and injured 220 others in clashes along the Syrian frontier.
They opened fire to disperse a crowd of pro-Palestinian demonstrators who stormed the border
in Majdal marking the anniversary of the 1967 Mideast war.
Protesters waved Palestinian flags and threw rocks and trash over the fence.
Israeli forces said they warned the crowds and fired shots in the air before aiming at the legs of the protesters who had reached the wall.
The violence took place at Golan Heights. The area that was seized by Israel at the end of the 1967 war, along with the West Bank Gaza and East Jerusalem.
Palestinians want all three areas for their future state.
Earlier today Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he would not allow extremists to breach borders and threaten towns and citizens.
He also vowed to prevent a repeat of similar demonstrations that took place last month.
Thirteen people were killed when Israeli troops tried to stop thousands of Palestinian protesters who had surged towards its frontiers.
