Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Nakba Day in 2011 was the annual day of commemoration for the Palestinian people marking the Nakba - the displacement that accompanied the creation of Israel in 1948. Generally held on May 15th, protests also took place on Israel's Independence Day, which occurred several days earlier this year since it follows the Hebrew Calendar. In an unprecedented development on May 15th 2011, thousands of Palestinians and Arabs from Syria, Lebanon, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip attempted to cross their respective borders with Israel, where 15 were killed and hundreds wounded by Israeli Army gunfire in various incidents. Attempts by march organizers in Egypt and Jordan to reach their borders with Israel were thwarted by security forces in those countries.show more
