Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said in a televised address to mark Nakba Day that those killed in clashes with the IDF on Sunday were martyrs to the Palestinian cause.

"Their precious blood will not be wasted. It was spilt for the sake of our nation's freedom," Abbas said.

Syria condemns Israel's 'criminal acts' against protesters

At least one Syrian national was killed by IDF gunfire when Nakba Day protesters tried to infiltrate Israel's border on Sunday. In similar clashes along the Lebanese border, conflicting reports spoke of between 3 and 10 people killed, while the IDF said that most and possibly all of the casualties were caused by the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF). At the same time, scores of Palestinians attacked IDF soldiers at the Kalandiya border crossing between Ramallah and Jerusalem with stones and gasoline bombs. In the Gaza Strip, one Palestinian was killed and at least 80 others were wounded when thousands of Palestinians marched toward IDF troops at the Nahal Oz and Erez border crossings, sources in Gaza City said
