The leaders in their address condemned the Israeli occupation on Palestine and support the process of return of Palestinians to Palestine. They said that it’s the basic right of Palestinians to return to their homelands because occupied Israeli’s forcibly evacuated the Palestinians.

Every May 14, Palestinians hold rallies to commemorate the “nakba,” or “catastrophe” – the term they use to describe the displacement, when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were driven from their homes during the fighting.
