Palestinians mark 1947 catastrophe

Palestinians marked the anniversary of their uprooting from their homeland almost seven decades ago with sirens and marches yesterday.
Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were driven out in the months leading up to Israel’s independence declaration in 1948 and these refugees now number several million.
Sirens wailed for 68 seconds in the West Bank to mark the passing of 68 years since what Palestinians call the “Nakba.”
