Israel Palestinians clash at Syrian border

Location: Golan Heights
June 6, 2011

A group of UN officers walk down a hill over looking Majdal Shams near the border between Syria and Israel in the Golan Heights early Monday, June 6, 2011.  Syrian police blocked dozens of pro-Palestinian protesters from approaching the Israeli frontier on Monday. The toll of demonstrators killed trying to break through into the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights rose to 23. Syrian police set up a pair of checkpoints, including one a half-mile (kilometer) from the border. Nearly 20 protesters, some waving Syrian flags, began walking down a hill leading to the border when two police officers blocked their advance by extending their arms.
