Leave Aida

You could move, but you still hope it will only be a matter of time until you can return home.

But it is also dangerous to try to go elsewhere. According to figures from Badil, from the end of the 1948 war until the Suez crisis of 1956, Israeli forces killed some 5,000 Palestinian refugees trying to return to their homes inside Israel.

Meanwhile, life in Israel for the members of your family who remained is not good. They are subject to extreme restrictions and live under the shadow of martial law. Sometimes they protest outside government buildings and some members organise sit-ins in Iqrit to call for their right to return, but this seems to only lead to broken promises from officials that couldn't care less.
