Palestinians have praised the United Nations’ decision to commemorate the Nakba, or Nakba, for the first time this year.

Earlier on Saturday, media reports indicated that the United Nations plans to commemorate May 15, Nakba Day, marking the establishment of the State of Israel in historic Palestine, for the first time in 2023.

The Palestinian news agency Wafa quoted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as saying, “The commemoration of the Nakba must be at the top of our priorities in order to preserve our narrative, which we must adhere to and convey to the whole world.”

Abbas urged all Palestinians to commemorate the tragedy of Palestine in 1948 “to confront all the lies and false narratives that try to distort history and facts.”

Palestinians celebrate Nakba Day annually on May 15 to remember the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes and lands in 1948 after the establishment of the State of Israel.

Abbas said, “What Palestinians everywhere must do is commemorate this tragedy, because it is the first time that the international community does not deny the Nakba.”

He added, “In these blessed days, we call on all our people to stand together to face the challenges facing our cause, our land and our sanctities, and focus our compass on confronting the occupation and getting rid of it.”
