The Jerusalem Post reported live on Tuesday, as hundreds attended Nakba Day protests in Jerusalem and the surrounding area. Nakba Day – or the “day of catastrophe” – is the day Palestinians mark the establishment of the State of Israel and its subsequent refugee crisis.

Amid concerns that violence would break out, the IDF beefed up forces and anti-riot teams along Israel’s borders. The IDF was concerned that it would face a repeat of last year’s Nakba Day protests when nearly 100 Syrians succeeded in crossing into Israel from the Golan Heights.
