It's been a day of violence in the Middle East where Israeli troops fired on protesters along three hostile borders as demonstrators attempted to cross into the country. The clashes broke out on Nakba Day, the anniversary of the founding of the Jewish State when many Palestinians lost their homes or were expelled. At least sixteen people were killed near the Lebanese, Syrian and Gaza borders. Tear gas and rubber bullets were used in an attempt to stop protesters crossing into Israel. Security officials said they sustained injuries as well. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said he hoped calm would return but warned the country is determined to protect its territorial integrity. Political activist Sami Abou Shahadeh says protesters can't stand against Israeli forces.
