Speakers expressed commitment to the Palestinian people and cause, asserting that armed struggle is the only option they adopt in the face of Israel.

Participants voiced rejection of concessions with Israel, underlining the importance of unity among all Palestinian sides to reach their goal of defeating Israel and returning to their land. Several countries’ ambassadors and diplomatic figures attended the event, in a show of support for Palestinians.

Thousands of Palestinian refugees took part, walking the streets of Yarmuk refugee camp, the largest in the region. They chanted slogans expressing steadfastness and resistance until freeing all their lands.
