May 15th marks the Nakba Day or the Day of Catastrophe for Palestinians. 69 years ago on this day, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forcibly evicted from their homeland by Israelis. Each year people come together across Palestinian territories to commemorate the sad events of May 1948. This year, Nakba Day has been marked amid a mass hunger strike by prisoners in Israeli jails.
