Just as the month of May brought the 65th anniversary of the “nakba” (catastrophe of 750,000 Palestinians losing their homes and land), so Israel upped the violence against Bethlehem.

See it reported in the highly respected Maan News:

And watch how Palestinians once again defied the occupation and expressed their outrage at 65 years of stolen land:

In Sydney, a series of mass meetings in May mourned 65 years of the  “nakba” as Israel continues settlement-building and stealing Palestinian land against international law.
