Al-Nakba Day, or the Day of Tragedy, is a day that, even more than seventy-five years after its occurrence, has not been erased from the minds of the free people of the world and Palestine.
On this day, many Palestinians were forced to leave their homes due to the brutal actions of the occupying Zionist regime. Nakba is a term referring to the war between the Zionist colonial forces and the Palestinians in 1948, which eventually led to the establishment of the fake Israeli regime and displaced more than 800,000 Palestinians.
On similar days like these in 1916, the British and French occupations began their negotiations about tearing up the Arab East (what was historically known natural Syria and Iraq) dividing it between them in mid-May of the same year, in what was known as the Sykes-Picot Agreement.
However, the borders drawn by that agreement, according to which the countries of the Middle East were established, now seem to have entered a stage of change and transformation.
