Al Nakba

Al Nakba

Al Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe) is the name given by Palestinians to refer to the 1947-9 Israeli War of Independence due to the planned expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinian Arabs, the abandonment or destruction of over 400 villages, massacre, and Judaisation of the territory partitioned to the Jews during the 1947-9 Israeli War of Independence. Contrary to UN resolutions refuges are not allowed to return to their homeland.
