Palestinians mark Nakba

Palestinians mark Nakba

AlJazeeraEnglish May 15, 2010 — Palestinians across the world are marking on Saturday the 62nd anniversary of Nakba, which means catastrophe.

In 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were displaced and many became refugees due to the formation of the state of Israel.

Mass gatherings commemorating the day of "catastrophe" in the West Bank and Gaza displayed a rare instance of unity between various political factions.

Al Jazeera's Nour Odeh reports from Beit Jala, a town in the West Bank.
