Lebanese officials Monday criticized the opening of the United States Embassy to Israel in occupied Jerusalem while hundreds of Palestinians across Lebanon protested the day before the commemoration of the Nakba.Nakba is an annual Palestinian commemoration of the expulsion of 700,000 Palestinians from their homes in 1948 in the fighting around the creation of the state of Israel.Among them was 82-year-old Nabiha Mohammad, who fled from Palestine to south Lebanon's Bint Jbeil in 1948 at the age of 12, before moving on to Ain al-Hilweh.Ibrahim also carried a poster in the shape of a key – a common symbol representing the Palestinians' eventual return to Palestine.Later Monday, Hezbollah's leader Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah implored Palestinians not to agree to any new Israeli-Palestinian agreement, which he sarcastically called "the deal of the century".Nasrallah predicted that in such a deal it would be stated that Jerusalem is the permanent capital of Israel, while no Palestinian refugees would return and the Gaza Strip or a small part of the West Bank would become Palestine.
