PA TV host: Palestinian refugee family left with other families in 1948 expecting to return in two weeks

Official PA TV program The Pioneers, on Palestinian attorney, author and poet Iskandar Khuri
Discussion about the life of Iskandar Khuri until the establishment of Israel in 1948, when he left his home in the Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem and went to Beit Jala, near Bethlehem.
Official PA TV host: "His family left first with other families when the pressures of terror by the Zionists gangs increased, and that (i.e., their leaving) was in order to protect their lives and because they thought that their absence from their homes would not last longer than two weeks and that afterwards they would return to them after the entry of the Arab armies into Palestine."
