Dozens shot in Israeli-occupied Golan -Israel Radio

JERUSALEM, May 15 (Reuters) - Dozens of people were wounded in a shooting incident on the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights on Sunday as Palestinian refugees from neighbouring Syria approached a frontier fence, Israel Radio said.

Initial reports said pro-Palestinian demonstrators who tried to break through the barrier were shot — it was not immediately clear by whom — as they tried to enter Israeli-controlled territory. The incident occurred on the day Palestinians mark the “Nakba” or catastrophe of Israel’s founding in 1948.
