Dozens of Italians protested Monday, May 15, in Trento, north of Italy, to mark the 75th anniversary of the Nakba, the mass ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in 1948.

A peaceful sit-in was reportedly organized in front of the University of Trento, during which the Italian participants commemorated the events of the 1948 Nakba in Palestine.

They condemned the continuous Israeli violations against the Palestinian people and the ongoing Israeli colonial project in occupied Palestine.

The protesters strongly condemned the last deadly Israeli attack on Gaza.

On Thursday, May 8, the Israeli occupation killed 33 Palestinian citizens, including 6 kids and 4 women, in its deadly attack on Gaza, during which Israeli warplanes bombed Palestinian houses, destroying 51 houses and partially damaging 880 other house units.

According to Palestinian official sources, the Israeli airstrikes on Gaza wounded 190 Palestinians, including 48 children and 26 women.

Nakba (catastrophe) refers to the May 1948 events, during which Israeli gangs murdered 15,000 Palestinians in many massacres throughout Palestine.

During the Nakba, the zionist gangs forcibly expelled 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland, who have been living in the diaspora until today.
