Palestinians commemorate Land Day today
The Palestine Land Day is being observed on Tuesday (today).
Land Day is an annual commemoration of the 1976 massacre that took place in Sakhnin, a Palestinian village in Northern Israel, Lower Galilee, North of Nazareth.
In 1976, Israeli security forces shot dead six Israeli Arabs who were protesting the expropriation of Arab-owned land in northern Israel to build Jewish communities.
About 100 others were wounded and hundreds were arrested during the prostest on March 30 of that year.
Moreover, every two in three Palestinians in Gaza are refugees. Israel has denied Palestinians from returning to the land from which they were expelled, a right enshrined in international law.
The social media platform, Twitter, is filled with immense support and expressing solidarity for Palestinians.
