A group of Palestinian societies in Europe are planning to launch a comprehensive conference in Berlin on Sunday, a statement said.

The organisers called for all members of the Palestinian communities and organisations across Europe to participate in the conference.

The 11 Palestinian bodies which are organising the event also called for all the people who believe in the Palestinian right of return to participate in the conference.

According to the statement, this conference is going to be held “in light of the Palestinian reality which was exhausted by the internal division and in light of the liquidation projects aimed at abolishing the Palestinian cause, the foremost of which is the deal of the century.”

Four issues will be discussed at the conference including Palestinian refugees, their right of return, UNRWA and the Jewish national law.

The second is the Palestinian diaspora, while the third is Jerusalem, settlements, the Separation Wall and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement and the fourth is the 11-year Israeli siege on Gaza and Palestinians prisoners.
