One protester who was wounded during "Nakba Day" protests on May 15 in the Lebanese village of Maroun al-Ras told British tabloid the Guardian that Hezbollah had paid him $50 to turn up at the border with Israel, and $900 to have his wounds treated by doctors.

He was planning to return to Maroun al-Ras for renewed "Naksa" protests Sunday, but stayed away after the march was canceled.
