Israelis Rally to End Occupation of Arab Land; Israel Seized W.Bank,E.Jerusalem in 1967 War

Thousands of Israelis rallied yesterday in Tel Aviv in support of a Palestinian state ahead of the 50th anniversary of Israel's occupation of Palestinian land, the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website reports today (May 28, 2017).

Banners bearing the slogan "Two States, One Hope" featured in the demonstration organized by supporters of a Palestinian state, including the Israeli NGO Peace Now.

NGO head Avi Buskila said the rally was a protest against "the lack of hope being offered by a government perpetuating occupation, violence and racism."

In 1967, Israel seized the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan during the Six-Day War with neighboring Arab states.
