Occupied Palestine (QNN)- Amid Israeli celebrations of the so-called ‘Israeli independence day’, a wave of posts and stories swept social media platforms, reassuring that what the Israelis are celebrating is actually the ethnic cleansing and expulsion of the native Palestinians from Palestine.
Thousands of activists all over the globe participated in the ongoing social media campaign using the hashtag #Nakba72 to remind everyone how ‘Israel’ was created on the dead bodies of an indigenous people and the ruins of their villages.
Some activists thought it would be good to remind people of historic facts.

During the Nakba, zionist forces expelled 750,000 Palestinians from their home, committed 31 massacres, & destroyed 531 Palestinians towns. ❀

Others stressed the Israeli ethnic cleansing and displacement are still taking place.
The #ThievingBastards are still dispossessing us 72 years later.
"And while condemnations of Israel's settlements usually cite illegality and a hindrance to the so-called 'two-state solution' .. are two separate war crimes, which together amount to genocide." #Return #Nakba72 pic.twitter.com/JPPkB3qoTg
