What you don't know about Land Day - 30 March

Friday, 30 March 2018 10:23


On March 30, 1976, Palestinians demonstrated from across Galilee in the north all the way to the Negev in the south after Israel ordered the confiscation of 2,000 hectares of land that belonged to Palestinian citizens of Israel.
The heroism of the people of Sakhnin, Deir Hanna, Arrabeh, Nur Shams, Kufr Qanna, as well as other villages in the Galilee, became an example for the Palestinian nation. Consequently, Israel’s racism and repression killed 6 Palestinians and injured over 100 during these events.
This day came to be known as Yom-Al Ard or Land Day. Palestinians commemorate it to demonstrate our commitment to the right and ownership of our land.
