72 years have passed since the illegal occupation of Palestine. According to the report, which marks the 72nd anniversary of the establishment of Israel in Palestine, 13 million Palestinians are still forced to live in exile even after seven decades of the establishment of Israel. They have no right to return to their homeland. Since the establishment of the Zionist state in Palestine in 1948, 12.4 million Palestinians have been forced to live in exile. The number of Palestinians who left their homes in 1948 has now more than increased tenfold. Displaced Palestinians are living as refugees in other countries a large number live in refugee camps in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

According to the UN resolution, the British army was to monitor the area until May 1948, when the British army began to roll up its sack. The Arabs alleged that the British troops surrendered their weapons to the Israelis on their way out. On April 5, 1948, a month before the British troops returned, the Israeli army entered Jerusalem. Under the agreement, the army was not allowed in Jerusalem, let alone carrying weapons. The Palestinians tried to block the passage of armed Israelis in Jerusalem, but the Israelis, armed with modern weapons, crushed the resistance. Hundreds of Palestinians were killed in the clashes.

Upon his return to Britain, the Jewish leader David Ben-Gurion announced the establishment of a state called (Israel), which was immediately recognized by the United States and Russia. At that time, Harry S. Truman was the President of the United States and the famous Communist leader Joseph Stalin was the head of Russia. The Israeli army crushed Palestinian protests at the behest of modern weapons, after which the Israeli army surrounded Palestinian settlements and pushed 700,000 Palestinians into Gaza. A total of 2,000 acres of land were snatched from the Palestinians in the occupation campaign. It should be noted that there were 10,000 Jews and 818,000 Arabs in Palestine, while the population of Jerusalem was 100,000, where the number of Muslims, Christians and Jews was almost equal.

On the other hand, the head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, has repealed all amendments to the law on pensions and retirement. Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtia wrote in a statement posted on the social networking site Facebook that all the proposals made in the Pension Act, including amendments to the retirement allowance of members of parliament and allowances for persons holding equal positions in ministers. All of these have been canceled. It should be noted that Palestinian political parties and human rights organizations had demanded that the Palestinian Authority suspend the implementation of the law on granting financial incentives to persons holding equal positions with ministers. Palestinian circles say the Retirement Act and related provisions were drafted without consultation with other representative Palestinian forces. In the current context of the Palestinian Authority’s financial crisis, it is unfortunate that former ministers or other political officials have been given increased concessions because the Palestinian people, on the other hand, are facing the worst economic problems.
