Headline: “Bir Zeit University marked Land Day”
     “The former mayor of Deir Hana in the 48 territories (i.e., Israel), Raja Khatib, said that Israel took control of the Palestinian lands by all ways and methods.”

Land Day – an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976 to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. During the protests, demonstrators burnt tires, blocked roads, and threw rocks and firebombs. Six demonstrators were shot and killed by the Israeli army and police. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider Land Day a national day.
