On Nakba Day, "thousands crashed the fences and tried to invade our borders and hurt our sovereignty," Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the opening of the Knesset's summer session and the commemoration of Theodore Herzl Day.

"For the rioters, 63 years of Israeli independence does not change a thing," Netanyahu said. "In Gaza, protesters said they want to come back to Jaffa. In Syria, the protesters said they want to return to the Galilee. Hamas in Gaza said they want to see the end of the Zionist experiment just like their Iranian patrons."
