The IDF is preparing for additional protests along the Lebanese border ahead of the Six Day War anniversary next week, a senior military official told the Associated Press.

Earlier this month, on the day that Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day, a dozen people were killed in demonstrations along the Lebanese and Syrian borders by both IDF and Lebanese troops attempting to disperse the demonstrations and prevent border breaches, AP reported.

According to the report, the IDF is aiming to avoid civilian casualties but has set several "red lines," meaning it would not allow any breaches of the border or allow Palestinians to enter West Bank settlements.
