Syrian media say Israeli soldiers shot and killed at least two pro-Palestinian demonstrators and wounded several others Sunday in the Golan Heights area.

The crowd had gathered at a fence at the Syrian border to mark the anniversary of the Arab defeat in the 1967 Middle East war.

Israel captured the Golan Heights from Syria in the conflict, also claiming the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.
