Nakba rally to house of terrorist who murdered 2 honors the “Martyr,” promotes “resistance”

"The National Committee to Commemorate the 71st anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) in the Salfit district concluded its activities to commemorate the anniversary with a mass public procession that set out yesterday [May 17, 2019] from the Al-Zawiya Elementary School for Boys towards the house of Martyr Omar Abu Laila (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) that was recently demolished by the occupation forces, where the central rally in the district was held with the lighting of the 71st torch of the Nakba above the ruins of the house of Martyr Abu Laila.

Hundreds of people participated in this demonstration, and at their head members of the district’s national committee, the mayor of Al-Zawiya, the heads of the local councils, the secretaries of the national forces, and the heads of the [PA] Security Forces.

National Committee member Hakam Qadri emphasized that our people will not experience a new Nakba again, despite the extent of the plots that are being woven against it and against its land and property. The ruins of the Martyrs’ houses on which we are currently standing - which the occupation demolished in a desperate attempt to stop the momentum of the resistance - are also testimony to the fact that we will not leave and will not succumb. Our people’s message to the occupation today is that we are standing firm and adhering to our land and our property, and the resistance will continue as long as there is occupation.”
