The Aftermath

30 November 2017

On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we commemorate the resilience of more than 5 million Palestine refugees, many of whom have suffered multiple displacements since 1948 when more than 700,000 Palestine refugees were displaced as a result of the first Arabi-Israeli war. In June 1967, hostilities broke out between Israel and Egypt, Jordan and Syria. It is reported that over 300,000 people were rendered homeless, including some 120,000 Palestine refugees. Again, many left with only what they could carry on their back. They lost their homes, their land, their family and their whole lives. Watch ‘The Aftermath’ – a newly digitized film from 1968 containing rarely seen footage – to see how UNRWA responded by providing emergency aid and relief in the wake of the 1967 hostilities.
