Palestinians Visit Homes, Graves of Land Day Victims killed in 1976

Af.M | DOP -

Dozens of Palestinians visited on Thursday, 30 March 2023 the homes and mausoleums of the Land Day victims who were killed in 1976 by the Israeli occupation forces’ bullets in the city of Sakhnin as they were protesting Israel’s expropriation of 21 thousand of dunums of Palestinian land in Galilee.

The land day has become a major commemorative date in the Palestinian political calendar and an important event in the Palestinian collective narrative – one that emphasizes Palestinian resistance to Israeli colonization.
