Syrian buses transported Palestinians to Lebanon-Israel borders

“Syrian buses transported the Palestinians from the refugee camps to the Lebanese Israeli borders in south Lebanon on the Nakba day last Sunday”, a well informed source told al Sharq al Awsat newspaper adding” the whole protest was organized by Syria “

He also said Hezbollah still maintains strong presence in south Lebanon despite the presence of the UNIFIL forces and the Lebanese army .

UN resolution 1701 forbids Hezbollah from having an armed presence in south Lebanon

The source ruled out any attempt by Iran to push Hezbollah to open a war front with Israel , “because such a venture is not guaranteed to succeed and won’t help the situation in Syria.” He said

The White House blamed Syria for inciting deadly protests last Sunday

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday such behavior on the part of Syria is unacceptable. He said it was intended to draw attention from the Syrian government’s violent crackdown on its own people who are pushing for reforms.

Eleven Palestinian protesters were killed and 112 were wounded by the Israeli forces last Sunday, security sources said

May 15 marked the “Nakba Day.” Nakba, meaning catastrophe in Arabic, and marks the period when more than 700,000 Arabs were displaced from their homes during the fighting following the creation of Israel in 1948.

     Good to see when a Lebanese source give us the true insight, when Israel is saying is a premeditated Syrian provocation people tend to discredit that! thank you.

    Yes, truth does not have an agenda.  Whether Syrian provocation is premeditated or not, we have to ask what is Israel’s agenda, and how it has crippled Lebanese interests, livelihood and welfare. Keeping some half a million Palestinian refugees in Lebanese territories and not allowing them to return to their land and homes is far more egregious than the protest.

    We all welcome the day when Israel finally faces the truth and is forced to allow the Palestinian refugees to finally leave Lebanon and be your problem for a while.  Don’t be upset, these are the natural consequences of wanting an Israeli State surrounded by Arab countries.
