Thousands of Palestinians commemorate Nakba in Ramallah
In a massive protest march, Saturday, in the West Bank city of Ramallah, thousands of Palestinians marched through the city streets in remembrance of the 62nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, or 'Catastrophe', when the state of Israel was created on Palestinian land in 1948 and hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were expelled from their homes in, what is now, Israel.
Chanting "We will not give up on the right of return, we will return to Jaffa, Haifa, Akko and Ramla,” the protesters referred to the names of their towns and villages inside what is now Israel.
