Since their calamity in 1948, the Palestinians, inside Palestine and abroad, carried the burden of their cause endeavoring to liberate their land and returning to it, and claiming their right of self determination according to their choices.
With all the developments that occurred after, especially after the Zionist occupation on the rest of the Palestinian territories in 1967, national activism and freedom fighting escalated among our people. The Palestinians abroad carried a massive share of the cause’s burden, and they continued to do so until the Zionist occupation to Lebanon in 1982, where their role was significantly affected by the exit of Palestinian resistance from Beirut at that time.
