Palestinians commemorate Naksa '' The Setback'' anniversary

Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- June 5th is the anniversary of the al-Naksa, which marks the second mass displacement of Palestinians by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day war. The first displacement, known as the Nakba, took place during and after the 1948 Palestine war.

The fifth of June marks Naksa day or the setback during 1967 six-day war.

At that time Israel launched a hostile war against Syria, Egypt and Jordan. After defeating Arab forces, Israel completed the occupation of the rest of the Palestinian territories and occupied vast areas of the Syria and Egypt. Forty six years later, a war veteran said Palestinians were betrayed by Arab forces. Palestinian resistance groups forced Israeli forces to withdraw from Gaza in 2005. Israel now says that it no longer occupies Gaza but facts on the ground prove otherwise. However this place under international law is occupied You only have to be here to see the Israeli warplanes that dominate the sky and still fly over. The sonic booms let alone the regular attacks that have hit the Gaza Strip. Experts say that Israel intends to maintain the occupation of the territories it occupied in 1967. On this occasion it seems to me that Israel is not interested in Peace with the Palestinians. Despite its claims that it no longer occupies Gaza Tel-Aviv still imposes a choking blockade on the tiny coastal enclave.
