75 years since Nakba

Palestinian people commemorate today, Monday, the 75th anniversary of the Nakba (1948), a day when the Palestinians will remember the human tragedy and displacement that befell them, and the day after that, the establishment of the State of Israel was declared.

The year of the Nakba witnessed more than 70 massacres carried out by the Zionist gangs, which Britain provided with arms and support, such as the massacres of Deir Yassin and Al-Tantura, and more than 15,000 martyrs and many battles between the Palestinian resistance fighters and the Arab armies on the one hand and the Israeli occupation on the other side.

In addition, 531 towns and villages were destroyed and erased, and Israeli settlements were established on their lands. Large cities were also occupied, and some of them witnessed violent battles and were subjected to occupation bombardment, which resulted in the destruction of large parts of them. Today, some of them have turned into a city inhabited only by Israelis, and others have become mixed cities.

It is noteworthy that the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics counted 6.4 million refugees until the end of 2020, indicating that the number of Palestinians has increased more than 10 times since the Nakba, while more than 100,000 martyrs have been recorded since the Nakba, and about one million arrests since 1967.
