“The Palestinian people will continue their struggle and resistance until their entire homeland is liberated, and they achieve their right to return,” Maher al-Taher, a member of the Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine, told Press TV.
“On the 63rd anniversary of the Day of Nakba (catastrophe) when the Zionist movement committed one of the ugliest crimes, we have a message to the world that the Palestinian people, who lived for thousands of years on their motherland, will not give up even a small part of their lands,” he added.
Khalid Abdul Majeed, secretary general of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, said the occasion is commemorated amid “big developments and changes in the region.”
He also pointed to the “conspiracy on the Palestinian cause through the American-Israeli vision to restrict the Palestinian people and their rights.”
“On this anniversary, we remember the destruction of hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages in addition to deporting hundreds of thousands [of Palestinians] from their own lands. The Palestinian refugees stress their right to return,” said Izzat al-Rishq, a member of Hamas Political Bureau.
The anniversary of the occupation of Palestine by the Israeli army and the expulsion of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homeland in 1948 is known as the Day of Nakba.
