Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called on the citizens and armies of Israel's neighboring Arab states to stand with Palestinians ahead of additional border protests on the anniversary of the Six Day War, known to Palestinians as the "Naksa."

Referring to protests on Nakba Day last month, in which over a dozen people were killed in attempts to breach Israel's borders from Syria and Lebanon, he said: "The blood of the martyrs from Maroun a-Ras or the Golan will not be spilled for nothing," Channel 10 reported.

The issue of Palestinian refugees, the Hezbollah strong man added, "needs to to remain our central issue."

"We need to invest efforts in order to return [the Palestinian people] to their homes, to their lands and their holy places," Nasrallah said in a speech.
