The Pro-Palestinian group that organized "Nakba Day" marches announced on Saturday that they were planning further protests on June 5, the day that the Six Day War broke out. The announcement, which was published on the Internet, called on Palestinians in foreign countries to fly to Israel and land at airports within the state.

The group called on Palestinian refugees to hold demonstrations at the borders between Israel and Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and the Gaza Strip.
