Image in PA daily: Kindergarten kids hold signs with names of Israeli cities together with Palestinian flags

Headline: “Children of the Birds of Paradise Kindergarten in El-Bireh mark Land Day”

Two pictures are shown of the event at the kindergarten.
In the picture on the left, children in the back are holding Palestinian flags while children in the front hold flowers with the names of the following Israeli cities and sites: Jaffa, Haifa, Lifta, Safed, and Lod.
In the picture on the right, a child is holding a large sign on which “Land Day” is written.

Land Day – 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 building 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.
