New Yorkers mark Nakba Day, rage against Palestinian journalist's murder
Hundreds rally in New York to mark the anniversary of the initiation of the Israeli regime's occupation and aggression, and also to condemn recent murder of a renowned Palestinian journalist.
The participants shouted "free Palestine" and "Israel you can't hide...you're committing genocide," as they were marking the Nakba (Catastrophe) Day. Back in 1948, the occasion saw the Israeli regime claiming existence following a heavily-Western-backed war against regional territories.
They also chanted "justice for Shereen," remembering Shereen Abu Akleh, who was brutally murdered while covering an Israeli military raid on the Jenin refugee camp in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
