In the face of an imminent Israeli threat to invade northern Gaza, Palestinians are forced to abandon their homes. While some opt to remain, others embark on an exodus reminiscent of the Nakba and under bloody Israeli airstrikes. On Friday, Israel targeted a convoy of displaced individuals on Salah al-Din Street within the Gaza Strip, a route connecting the north and south, killing 70 Palestinians and leaving over 200 others wounded.
The Nakba continues to be an indelible and painful memory, as the Palestinian right of return remains unfulfilled. In Gaza, the majority of the 2.3 million population are descendants of those forcibly displaced, bearing the brunt of relentless Israeli attacks.
The prospect of seeking refuge in the southern region raises concerns about safety and the possibility of return, while President Mahmoud Abbas staunchly opposes the evacuation orders, fearing a "new Nakba," amid amplified voices of Israeli extremists advocating for the expulsion of Palestinians from their lands.
