A press release by the Division of Refugee Affairs
On the occasion of the 72nd anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba "Catastrophe"
The Nakba and its 72nd anniversary are always renewed in our people's hearts wherever they are. It commemorates an un forgettable anniversary of Palestine.
The Nakba carries several messages in its 72nd anniversary. To create awareness of identity and land, the struggle between the oppressed and the oppressor, truth and the tyranny and between the usurping occupier and the homeless refugee people.
The Nakba and its 72nd anniversary draw a path for the inevitable return being a right as the sun in the daytime.
On the 72nd anniversary of the Nakba, we in the Division of Refugee Affairs of the Islamic Resistance Movement of Hamas, affirms the following:
First / Palestine, from river to the sea, is our right as a Palestinian people, no compromise, no negligence, and no retreat. Our return to Palestine is a right that does not lapse by statute of limitations, and our right to resistance is protected under all religions and laws.
Second / We extend our sincere salutations and gratitude to our people everywhere, especially in the refugee and diaspora camps.
Third / No for the "deal of the century" and we assert that our people will fail the project of annexing the West Bank. We call on our people to revolt against the occupier everywhere and at every checkpoint and settlement.
Fourth / We reject all forms of political, cultural, artistic, sports, and commercial normalization with the occupiers of Palestine and usurpers of our land. We reaffirm that normalization is treachery and a stab in the back of our people.
Fifth / We call upon the UNRWA to offer urgent financial and food aid to Palestinian refugees in its all five areas of operations to help them cope with the economic and social crisis resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.
Glory and eternity to the martyrs of Palestine!
Freedom for prisoners!
Recovery for the wounded!
And it is a revolution until liberation and return!
