Nakba Day is when Palestinians commemorate the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian cities and towns by Zionist paramilitaries in 1948.

Annual protests marking the Nakba, or “catastrophe”, when the state of Israel was established on May 15, 1948, took place across the occupied territories on Tuesday.

About 750,000 people were forcibly expelled from historical Palestine.

Rallies, which have been ongoing since March 30, call for the right of return of Palestinian refugees to the homes and villages they were forced out of decades ago.

Since last month, the Israeli army has killed 111 Palestinians and more than 12,000 have been wounded drawing outrage and international condemnation.
