Eyeing Al-Nakhba on the 15th of May,1948

During the 1948 Palestine War, an estimated 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled, and hundreds of Palestinian villages were depopulated and destroyed.The vast majority of Palestinian refugees were barred by the newly declared state of Israel from returning to their homes or reclaiming their property. This dispossession and dispersal of the Palestinian people is known to them as al-Nakba,

After 63 years these peiople are still displaced.
