A march for Palestinians to commemorate the 66th anniversary of the Nakba took place Thursday from the coastal city of Sidon toward the southern border with Israel to symbolize their hope to return to the historic land.The first refugees to emerge from the Nakba were witnessed by Sidonians 66 years ago, when thousands of Palestinian refugee families erected tents and settled in the city, in an area known today as the camp of Ain al-Hilweh. May 15 is the day on which Palestinians remember their expulsion from Palestine, where Israel was founded in 1948 .Palestinians also met with representatives of Lebanese political parties, Palestinian factions and local government officials. Around 50 Palestinians, including religious figures, intellectuals and workers, joined another march organized by the Returning to Palestine Committee.
