"More than 700 tents have been erected in Camp Dignity, which is to house 30,000 who have lost their homes. The camp is just a few kilometers away from the well-known Jabaliya camp, which was established in 1948 for some 35,000 refugees who were provided tents until the UNRWA could build permanent housing. For Gazan refugees, living in tents stirs memories of the tragedy that began 60 years ago, when the 1948 Israeli war on Palestinians forced thousands into refugee camps."
"Israeli military records, along with the personal writings of early Zionist leaders, have documented a deliberate and planned terror campaign that displaced more than 700,000 Palestinians during the creation of Israel overtop Palestinian land. Palestinians refer to the event as the Nakba, or catastrophe."
