On the seventy-second anniversary of Palestinian Nakba (catastrophe)
AMEF Calls for International Efforts to End Israeli Occupation and Repatriate Palestinian Refugees
Asia Middle East Forum calls for positive international efforts to help end the Israeli occupation in Palestine and repatriate the Palestinian refugees to their home land.
The Israeli occupation has caused prolonged suffering in Palestine and instability elsewhere in the region as the Israeli forces continue to carry out attacks over sovereign countries.
The lingering effect of occupation seems alarming, both in political aspect and human rights aspect, as well.
The recent Israeli announcement of another wave of annexation in the occupied West Bank serves as a reminder of the Israeli disregard to Palestinian basic rights and the international law.
In the spirit of international solidarity and upon a collective responsibility to make the end of occupation, we urge friends and supporters of Palestine to play roles on all possible arenas to support the Palestinian legitimate rights of self-determination and sovereignty.
In the aftermath of the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe) that took place on May 15, 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forcefully displaced from their homes by Zionist forces. The invaders totally destroyed more than 530 Palestinian towns and cities, and official reports state that thousands of Palestinians have been killed.
