The “setback” in question: The Six Day War in 1967.
At least 4killed and 12 injured along Israel-Syria border at the start of Naksa Day.
Syrian television on Sunday reported that four people were killed and 12 injured along the Syria-Israel border in the Golan Heights near Majdal Shams, reportedly from IDF fire. The IDF spokesperson said that the only information it had on deaths on the border were Syrian reports and therefore, it could not confirm the number of people killed or if there were any deaths.
Earlier Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned that there are “radical elements who are trying to breach [Israel’s] borders to mark the anniversary of the start of the Six Day War,” speaking at the beginning of the weekly cabinet meeting. “We won’t allow them to do it.”
Netanyahu added that the security forces will act “firmly but with restraint.”

Syrian TV: 20 Dead in Clashes with IDF. Israeli Druze Join Riot.
The IDF released an 18-second video in which Israeli commanders are heard ordering their soldiers to cease firing in order to allow the Red Cross to evacuate casualties on the Syrian side.
Police fired tear gas at rioting Druze residents of Majdal Shams Sunday evening, after the rioters hurled rocks at IDF soldiers. The Druze emerged from their village in the Israeli Golan Heights and attacked the IDF soldiers from behind, as the soldiers were busy keeping Druze on the Syrian side of the border from crossing into Israel.
It’s about time that Israel takes off the gloves and…… Well…… Yeah.
