Naksa Day is the annual day for the Palestinian people of marking the displacement after the Six-Day War in 1967. As a result of the war, Israel took control of the Palestinian-populated West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Fifty years of military occupation have wrought untold pain and misery on Palestinians. It has been a period in which international law has repeatedly been broken by Israel. And it’s been a period in which Palestinians have escalated their resistance.
