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.

The IDF, Netanyahu told Likud legislators, acted "against its own rules rules of engagement" in order to minimize casualties, emphasizing that Israel "will act according to our right to protect our border."

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