Palestinians in Syria may cancel Sunday's "Naksa Day" march to the Israeli border, commemorating the 1967 Six-Day War, Egypt's official news agency reported on Saturday.

The MENA news agency reported that the head of the committee representing Syria's various factions announced that the event has been postponed, and that "Naksa Day" rallies were to be marked within Syria and Lebanon instead.

On Friday, a high-ranking Palestinian source told Lebanese newspaper the Daily Star, that the Lebanese "Naksa Day" march would be held off after pressure from the Lebanese authorities.
