SIDON, Lebanon: The Israeli army strengthened its presence along its northern border with Lebanon Friday ahead of “Land Day,” security sources told The Daily Star.

Although no protest is planned on the Lebanese side of the border, the Israeli military has set up security cameras and deployed personnel to conduct patrols.

Several reconnaissance jets also flew over several parts of south Lebanon.

Palestinians in Lebanon’s 12 refugee camps will hold rallies to mark Land Day, which is commemorated has been commemorated on March 30 since 1976, when Palestinian protests against planned Israeli land confiscations were met by violent crackdowns.
