Nakba Day (meaning "Day of the Catastrophe") is generally commemorated on 15 May, the day after the Gregorian calendar date for "Israeli Independence Day" (Yom Ha'atzmaut). For the Palestinians it is an annual day of commemoration of the displacement that preceded and followed "the Israeli Declaration of Independence" in 1948.

During the 1948 Palestine war, an estimated 700,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled, and hundreds of Palestinian towns and villages were depopulated and destroyed.
These refugees and their descendants number several million people today, divided between Jordan (2 million), Lebanon (427,057), Syria (477,700), the West Bank (788,108) and the Gaza Strip (1.1 million), with at least another quarter of a million internally displaced Palestinians in Israel.[4] The displacement, dispossession and dispersal of the Palestinian people is known to them as an-Nakba, meaning "catastrophe" or "disaster”.

No wonder!
It doesn't matter to those kinds even if all Palestinians were killed or expelled from their home.

Catastrophe is a catastrophe, be that of man-made or of nature's fury. Adding insult to injury is ...... A restrain is most welcome.

Why Israeli forces are killing innocent Palestines?

Hmm!
First of all, whoever gives up the Jerusalem will give up the two holy places.

Secondly, even Google Translation, powered and managed by the American Google corporation, translated "Palestinians" as a member of the native Arab population of the region of Palestine (including the modern state of Israel)", which means "Israel" doesn't exist, and will remain non-existent, whatever its supporters claim.

Finally, IMHO, the Israeli forces have been killing innocent Palestinians, simply, because the Palestinians, the legal owners, don't kill innocent Israeli citizens in return since they even don't have by far the least equivalent weapons to defend themselves from the children-killer cowardly abominable occupier while other Arabs have now been in conflicts between Shiites and Sunnis sparked off by the KSA, UAE, Iran, US, UK, Russia, France, Turkey, and Israel.
If you came back your home, found all your family were killed, bombed by someone known to you, then what
on earth would the entire world have expected to be done by you in return?

I am afraid to say you must apply the rule of "kill to live" with some arrogant nations.WhistleBoo hoo! That doesn't mean to kill to enjoy yourself. However, if you're violated or cast first, then you'd have had to defend yourself, or otherwise you'll be endangered.

I am sorry to say there will never be peace on the earth or even on any other planet, or otherwise simply there is no sense to be there the heaven and the hell. The heaven is for the good ones, and the hell is for evil ones.

It all reminds me (rather sadly) of a reported, perhaps apocryphal, conversation between two British soldiers in Ulster during "the troubles": "I don't think God is on either side."

Applause

I guess this may be because both sides are instigated by a third party that is at odds with the God that both parties involved worship.
