Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman plans to file a complaint with the United Nations against Syria for its use of Palestinian demonstrators to challenge Israel's sovereignty, Israel Radio reported on Monday.

The report came following border clashes on Sunday's Naksa Day, in which hundreds of protesters attempted to infiltrate Israel's borders in two separate locations.

A government official stated that it was clear the Syrian government gave the green light for the protesters to move toward the border,

“One can only suppose that there was a decision taken in Syria to exploit the situation to change the subject from what is going on inside Syria,” the official said. The official also asked whether the Palestinians feel comfortable “being used as a propaganda tool by an authoritative government butchering its own people.”
