Palestinian groups postpone Naksa marches

Share:

Palestinian factions in Lebanon said Friday they are postponing a march planned for Sunday on Israel’s border because of pressure from the United States.

Palestinian sources indicated similar “Naksa Day” marches planned in Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Gaza and the West Bank, may be canceled as well, The Jerusalem Post reported.

The Naksa march commemorates the 1967 Six-Day War.

An Islamic Jihad Movement official in Lebanon announced in a statement that “after the Palestinian forces learned about the current situation in Lebanon we’re leaning towards canceling the marches planned for Sunday along the border line with Palestine.”

Lebanese media reported the main reason for the postponement was because of pressure applied by the U.S. government through Assistant Secretary of State Jeffrey Feltman.

    I’m for all the Palestinians marching to the borders on the condition that every single one of them attempts to enter Israel. At that point either they will enter and go find their homes or Israel will shoot at them, then Israel have to deal with mascaraing thousands maybe millions of innocent people. Either way the Palestinian issue will be solved.

      There homes don’t exist anymore. I’m all for all of them leaving Lebanon, as long as when they enter Israel, they don’t stop, continue all the way down the coastal road, and go into Gaza, or cross the Galilee and go into Jordan. I agree they shouldn’t be Lebanon’s problem. But they shouldn’t be ours either. Let their own people deal with them. 

      Once Lebanon’s been rid of that Palestinian plague, I’m sure peace between our two great countries will be much more attainable.
