In a statement on the occasion of the Land Day in Palestine (March 30), Hezbollah said it is proud of Palestinians’ resistance and honorable stances, Lebanon 24 website reported.
It added that the Palestinian nation is committed to liberating its lands from occupation.
Hezbollah also said that the Zionist regime cannot escape from the reality that Palestinian resistance groups are determined to end the occupation.
In late March 1976, Israeli troops killed six Palestinians, wounded 100 others and detained hundreds more who had held peaceful demonstrations against Israel’s confiscation of 21,000 dunams (5,189 acres) of their land. Palestinians, both at home and overseas, have been marking the event known as the Land Day with rallies and remembrance ever since.
March 30 marks the anniversary of Land Day in Palestine. In the history and culture of the Palestinian people’s struggle, Land Day is reminiscent of the protests and voices of the Palestinian people living under occupation against the Zionist occupiers who, after the occupation of the Palestinian territories, have usurped and confiscated the lands of the main inhabitants of the Palestinian territories and replaced them with migrant Zionists. The day is a milestone in the process of the Palestinian people’s struggle and resistance against the Zionist regime’s occupation policy, and, accordingly, Land Day is still an indispensable part of the oppressed Palestinian people’s political life and struggle that has been shaped and has continued in protest at the violence, racial prejudice, seizure of lands, destruction of villages and displacement of Palestinians.
