JERUSALEM (JTA) -- A Syrian infiltrator who breached Israel's border during Nakba Day protests turned himself in to police in Tel Aviv.
A Tel Aviv court on Tuesday ordered Hassan Hijazi, who said he entered Israel to look for a job, held until later in the week. Two other infiltrators discovered to still be in Israel were returned Tuesday to Syria.
They were among hundreds who breached Israel's border on Sunday.
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel filed a complaint with the United Nations Security Council against Syria and Lebanon over the breach of its border by protesters.
The delegation said Monday it filed the complaint in the Security Council and with the U.N. Secretary-General's office for violation of international law.
The complaint follows demonstrations on Sunday for Nakba Day, or Catastrophe Day, marking Israel's achieving statehood. Israeli troops fired on protesters from Syria, Lebanon and Gaza who tried, and in some cases succeeded, in breaching Israel's border.
