Nakba Day at the Borders

Several Palestinians were shot while trying to enter Israel on three different borders today: Gaza, Lebanon and Syria (the last one being a border with the Israel-occupied Golan Heights). In Tel-Aviv, a Palestinian citizen of Israel ran over crowds in an apparent terrorist attack. Officials expected a lot of violence, but it seems like they were mostly surprised by where the events took place. Nobody foresaw the Palestinian mini-invasion into the Golan.

I hope all those who entered Israel will be captured and brought back to Syria, including those who claim they seek political asylum. We should do our best to avoid giving Bashar Assad a much needed distraction from his own people's demonstations against him. I also hope the worst of this day is behind us.
