Israeli PM orders restraint if Arabs rush border
Jerusalem: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered security forces to act with "restraint but determination" to defend Israel if thousands of Arabs try to storm its northern borders next week.
Facebook-organised Arab protesters are gearing up to rush Israel`s border with Syria on Sunday. Last month, a human wave caught Israel off guard and resulted in more than a dozen deaths.
Hundreds of Arabs managed to burst into the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights in riots marking the annual day when Palestinians mourn the establishment of Israel. Deadly clashes also occurred on the Israel-Lebanon border.
Speaking in Jerusalem on Thursday, Netanyahu said, "Israel has the right and duty to secure its borders and protect them."
