Netanyahu: Israel has the right and duty to guard its borders

Israel will react to any breach of its borders with both determination and restraint, Prime Minister Netanyahu said Thursdayat a high-tech conference in Jerusalem, of Palestinian plans to repeat last month's "Nakba Day" protests with marches on Israel's borders to mark the 1967 Six Day War.
"Like any country in the world, Israel has the right and duty to guard and defend its borders. Therefore my instructions are clear, to act with restraint, but with the necessary decisiveness to protect our borders, our communities and our citizens".

"On the 15th of May we celebrated the establishment of the State of Israel, and we witnessed attempts to subvert our sovereignty and breach our borders on behalf of Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas. Those same actors, are expected to lead similar events over the coming days".
