Thousands of Palestinians gathered Tuesday at Beaufort Castle in southern Lebanon to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, or "catastrophe," the dispossession of Palestinians from their homeland caused by the establishment of the state of Israel.The Nakba Day protest began at around 4 p.m., roughly 10 kilometers from, and in eyesight of, occupied Palestine. It was unclear whether Palestinians from other areas in Lebanon were able to participate in the protest, after reports in local media suggested that security forces would prevent Palestinians in northern areas from traversing the country.
