Protests in Ain al-Hilweh camp over Sunday’s Golan violence

The residents of the Ain al-Hiweh Palestinian camp in Lebanon went on strike Monday as they closed the camp’s entrances to protest Sunday’s killings of protestors on the Golan Heights border by Israeli gunfire.

NOW Lebanon’s correspondent reported that the protestors in Ain al-Hilweh blocked the camps entrances with flaming tires, and rallied in the area.

Fatah commander in Lebanon Mounir Maqdah, based in the camp, vowed to “retaliate from inside Israel,” after several protestors on the Golan borders were killed by Israeli gunfire on the anniversary of the 1967 Six-Day War.

State media in Syria reported 23 dead and 350 wounded, a toll contested by the Israeli military which said 10 people had been killed when landmines exploded on the Syrian side of the demarcation line.
