The IDF continued its increased presence along the border with Syria as some 100 demonstrators continued to linger at both Kuneitra and Majdal Shams following repeated attempts to infiltrate the border on Sunday as part of Naksa Day protests.

While the protesters were not attempting to cross the border on Monday morning, the IDF remained prepared for a renewal of activity.

The IDF rejected Syrian media reports that 23 people had been killed while trying to infiltrate the border on Sunday.
