The ‘Nakba Day’ is not observed as an event but as the process of displacement, disenfranchising, and deprivation of Palestinians that it initiated and continues to blight them.

Last year’s Nakba Day march at the Lebanon-Israel border was called ‘March for the return to Palestine’ with protestors chanting, “By our soul, our blood, we sacrifice ourselves for you, Palestine.” Israeli forces, using live ammunition, had injured more than 100 protestors and killed six, among them two girls aged six and eight; in all 12 protesters died. Israeli firing on ‘Naksa Day’, meaning ‘Day of the Setback’, observed on June 5 to commemorate the displacement of Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip after the 1967 Six-Day War, in June near Golan, resulted in protestors suffering 20 killed and hundreds injured.
