Official PA radio station "The Voice of Palestine", Song in honor of Land Day, an annual March 30 commemoration of violent protests in 1976
Lyrics: "O our land, on Land Day we salute the Martyr who fell for your sake, homeland...
we decorated [the land] with Martyrs, souls, and blood...
On March 30, O day of the struggle, we rebelled against Zionism and the occupation.
The Martyrs’ blood flowed in you and sang a song for you...
There is nothing more precious than you, O land of Palestine.
By Allah, we have sacrificed the precious Martyrs for your sake."
