Damascus, SANA – The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) on Friday held the “Loyalty to Resistance & Return’s Martyrs” festival marking the 67th anniversary of the Nakba in Jaramana in Damascus Countryside.
“Nakba” is an Arabic term meaning “catastrophe” which refers to the establishment of Israel in 1948 and the subsequent displacement of the Palestinian people.
Deputy Secretary-General of the PFLP Abu Ahmad Fuad lashed out at some Arab countries which he said had signed accords with the Zionist Entity “just to protect their tribes and kingdoms.”
Commenting on the situation of Yarmouk, a refugee camp near Damascus where thousands of Syrian and Palestinian citizens are besieged by terrorist organizations including ISIS which overran the camp with the help of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists, he said that the Front supports any solution that ensures the return of the locals to the camp and keeps the Palestinian camps in Syria away from the raging crisis.
A number of participants said that the right to return is sacred and all 67 years of instability that followed Nakba will not fragment the Palestinians or blur their national identity.
