DAMASCUS, Syria – A Syrian government newspaper says marches to the border will continue and warns Israel the day will come when thousands of Syrians will return to their occupied villages.
Israeli forces opened fire on Palestinian and Syrian protesters Sunday, killing as many as 23 people who tried to cross into the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights.
The Tishreen newspaper said the march was only an "introduction" adding Syrians and Palestinians were now determined to recover their territory through resistance.
It says Israel should not be surprised when 600,000 Syrian refugees march back to their villages and farms from which their families were forcefully uprooted.
Israel should expect a march "at any time," it said.
