Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon has taken to social media to respond to UN criticism of its actions during Nakba Day protests.

"Israel's territory is not worthless and will not be abandoned. Israel has the right and duty, as any nation, to defend itself and its borders," Ayalon wrote in a Facebook posting that he also tweeted. "It is disappointing that the person in charge of humanitarian affairs at the UN requires explanations on why defensible borders are a fundamental right. Israelis are not second class citizens and they are entailed to all the rights of citizens of other nations."

Ayalon also used Facebook to give an update on his efforts, writing, "I told the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and the European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid that the Syrian rioters who broke through our borders are not innocent, but criminals who endanger Israeli citizens."
