Safed is "a deeply rooted Palestinian city" and the Upper Galilee is in "northern Palestine"

PLO youth magazinze Zayzafuna, column Lest We Forget: 
“The city of Safed is a deeply-rooted Palestinian city whose history dates back to the days of the Canaanites… considered the capital of the Upper Galilee in Palestine… The Zionists seized it on April 24, 1948, and its inhabitants were expelled to Lebanon and Syria… 61 colonies were established on the land of Safed.”

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. PMW’s book Deception includes a chapter on Zayzafuna. Following PMW’s exposure of Hitler glorification in the February 2011 issue, UNESCO halted its funding of the magazine. View UNESCO’s statement and PMW's bulletin on the December 2011 issue of the magazine.
