Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that the "Naksa Day" events Sunday on the Syrian border were an attempt to heat up the border and were not about the 1967 Six Day War, speaking to a Likud faction meeting on Monday.

They Syrian government, the prime minister charged, did not "use its weight to stop the events from happening."
