'Syria attempting to create crises on border with Israel'

An Israeli official commented on pro-Palestinians demonstrators crossing over from Syria into Israel as part of Nakba Day protests, saying "this is a cyclical and transparent act by the Syrian regime to create a crisis on the border with Israel in order to distract public opinion from the very real problems at home."
"Syria is a police state. This sort of thing could not happen without the support of the regime. It is clear they wanted this to play the Israel card, in order to silence their own democratic opposition," the official said.
