Haniyeh: We have no homeland except Palestine

Dec. 11, 2012 4:28 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 12, 2012 2:51 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian people have one homeland, Gaza premier Ismail Haniyeh said Tuesday.

"The blood of Hamas leader Ahmed al-Jaabari and other martyrs were the gate to victory despite the fact that we lost a great resistance and Jihad figure," Haniyeh said, addressing a delegation representing Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.

Palestinian refugees must be able to return to Palestine in order to end decades of suffering in exile, the Hamas prime minister added.

Head of the Lebanese delegation, Minister of Foreign Affairs Adnan Mansour, congratulated the Palestinian people on their resistance.

Over 700,000 Palestinians were expelled or fled their homes in 1948 during a war that led to Israel's independence.

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.

There are now roughly seven million Palestinian refugees worldwide, the descendents of the 1948 Nakba, or catastrophe, according to Badil resource center.
