Hundreds of Palestinians took part in an al-Nakba demonstration in Gaza on Saturday, where protesters demanded the right to return home to the lands they left when Israel became a state on May 15, 1948. The protesters held Palestinian flags and waved Israeli flags adorned with crosses. They also held banners with messages such as: "Returning is the right and the will of the people" and "Children won't forget 1948". 'Al-Nakba' means 'the catastrophe' in Arabic and is commemorated by Palestinians worldwide. The al-Nakba movement wants to establish the right of return for 750,000 Palestinians who fled or were forced to leave land that became Israel in 1948.
