BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The national committee to remember the Nakba is planning a protest in Ramallah on Tuesday to mark Nakba day.

On May 15, Palestinians commemorate the Nakba, or catastrophe, of Israel's founding in 1948, when over 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from or fled their homes.

Local and popular committees in refugee camps, village councils and municipalities participate in events to mark the anniversary.

Badil, a Palestinian organization for residency and refugee rights, said events would be held across the Palestine and internationally on Nakba day.

As an organization that focuses on the right of refugees to return, Badil continuously holds events to remember the Nakba, Badil director Ahmad Mhaisin told Ma'an.
