In Ramallah city, large crowds of people spearheaded by scouts went across several streets before rallying in the Mugtarebin (expatriates) square.

Thousands of Palestinians also participated in rallies and activities held to commemorate the anniversary in the cities of Jenin, Nablus, Qalqiliya, Tulkarem, Tubas and Salfit.

Sirens were sounded for 65 seconds in different West Bank cities to denote the years since the Nakba happened.

Meanwhile, violent clashes broke out in Al-Khalil and Bethlehem cities when Israeli soldiers attacked anniversary events.

Clashes also took place between young men and Israeli soldiers at the military checkpoints of Qalandiya and Ofer near Ramallah city and at the northern entrance to Ram town north of Jerusalem.

Hundreds of Palestinians also held a candlelit vigil at night to commemorate the Nakba day in the Church of the Nativity’s courtyard in Bethlehem.

In occupied Jerusalem, the Israeli occupation forces violently attacked Palestinians celebrating the Nakba day and kidnapped more than nine Palestinians in Bab Al-Amoud area.

Among the detainees were human rights activist Naser Qous and a reporter working for MBC satellite channel named Tawfiq Saliba.

Many Jerusalemite citizens suffered injuries when their march was suppressed by Israeli soldiers and policemen in Bab Al-Amoud.

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The by media displayed narrative of a bodycount – victims fallen by direct violence – does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which mostly stay undocumented. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does media display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting.

These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organizations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine.

For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
