The Palestinian group that organized Nakba Day demonstrations last week is calling on Palestinian refugees to stage peaceful marches to Israel's borders on June 5, the Palestinian news agency Maan reported on Saturday.

June 5 will mark the 44th anniversary of the start of the Six Day War in 1967, during which Israeli forces took control of East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

According to the report, the group said that refugees will hold demonstrations in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as well as in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan.

Last Sunday, clashes erupted during Nakba Day protests in the Palestinian territories and along Israel's borders with neighboring states.

A total of 14 demonstrators were killed in incidents on the Lebanese and Syrian borders.

The group organizing the demonstrations reportedly said on Saturday that the May 15 protests were "just the beginning".
