Palestinian refugees across Lebanon commemorate the 44th anniversary Naksa day (the Defeat Day) on Sunday.

Shops were closed in Lebanon's 12 Palestinian refugee camps, where black flags of mourning were hoisted, as the Lebanese army reinforced its presence, particularly in the south.
Lebanese soldiers manned roadblocks on roads to the border.

Lebanese and Palestinian activists had planned to protest at the border with the Palestinian occupied territories but the army banned any gatherings at the frontier.
Several protesters tried to stage a rally in the southern village of Adaisseh near the Lebanese-Palestinian border. However, police and soldiers quickly disperse them.

Al-Manar correspondent in the south reported that the army arrest 14 Lebanese citizens and two Palestinians.
The army asked the protesters to leave the area, the correspondent added.

During the Six-Day War, Israel seized Sinai, which it returned to Egypt in 1982, Syria's Golan Heights, the West Bank including east Al-Quds, and the Gaza Strip.
