UN Peacekeepers Fail to Stop Nakba Day Border Incursions

(I*Consult) Lenny Ben-David - The Nakba Day marches on May 15 involved the illegal invasion of Israeli territory. Hamas was behind the attack at the Erez Crossing from Gaza, the Syrian government organized the recruitment and busing of hundreds of Syrian-Palestinians to Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights, and Hizbullah paid for and organized the assault from Lebanon. Close inspection of photos (which accompany this article) shows the hostile intention of the assaults. Notice that there are no photos of UN peacekeeping forces along Israel's border with Lebanon and Syria - UNIFIL and UNDOF - trying to stop the incursions and protect the peace. The international forces mandated to keep peace were nowhere to be seen when Israel's sovereignty and security were under attack.
