Land Day – Palestinians Commemorated Land Day on March 30th when Israel confiscated thousands of acres of 1948 Palestinian territories in 1976.
Upon this, Arabs in Palestine declared a broad protest, Defying Israeli authorities after the 1948 Nakba calamity. The Israeli military response back then was severe; Israeli reinforcements entered and Reoccupied Araba city, killing and wounding many unarmed citizens.
Since then, Palestinians Commemorate this day with protests and activities. A number of committees participated in a protest across an Israeli prison in solidarity with the Palestinian prisoners. A central march is to be held in Sakhneen city in Galilee. Moreover, the Israeli police declared full Alertness in case of any possible incident.
Al-Quds daily cited an official of maps in the Arab Research Center a statistical survey that the 1948 Palestinians do not own but 4% of their lands, while al-Quds residents own only 13%. Israel controls 58% of West Bank territories, aiming at defining its borders. 1948 Palestinians refer to the Palestinian citizens who now live in territories occupied by the Zionist entity back in 1948, establishing the supposed “State of Israel”.
