“The 99th anniversary of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)

The images show various pictures of Palestinian refugees, and at the bottom left a logo is seen bearing a “99” with “1917-2016” under it, referring to the 99th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, which was issued in 1917.
The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
