The Lebanese army said on Sunday Israeli soldiers fired in the direction of a gathering at the Lebanese border village of Maroun al-Ras, killing 10 people and wounding 112. Israeli security forces had been on alert for violence on Sunday, the day Palestinians mourn the "Nakba," or catastrophe, of Israel's founding in a 1948 war, when hundreds of thousands of their brethren fled or were forced to leave their homes.
