According to the article, Israel should be ready for more than 600,000

Israel has accused Syria of orchestrating the protests on Sunday, where Syria claims more than 20 people were killed after they attempted once again to breach the border fence between the Golan Heights and the Syrian town of Majdal Shams.

Another article in the same paper claimed that Israel should know that mass marches are approaching, and does not have grounds for deterrence. "Israel can not even use the pretext of self-defense, for what it calls its borders," the article says.
