Israeli forces on Sunday shelled Palestinians trying to cross the Syrian-Israeli borders, leaving four dead, al-Jazeera TV reported.

The report said that Thousands of Palestinian refugees in Syria rallied in Ein al-Tineh village on the Syrian side of the border with Israel to mark Nakba Day, or the Catastrophe, which is an annual commemoration for the Palestinian people's displacement that accompanied the creation of the Israeli state in 1948.

It said that hundreds of those who gathered at Ein al-Tinah have succeeded in crossing the separating line into the village of Majdal Shams in the Golan Heights, the dominating plateau that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war.

It added many other Palestinians are trying to cross the separating line while the Israeli forces are firing tear gas to force them to retreat.
