Watch: Nakba - The day of catastrophe

Every year on May 15, Palestinians mark the Nakba, which literally translates as “The Catastrophe."
It refers to the uprooting and mass exodus of over 700,000 Palestinians from their homes — an organised system of expulsion that many say amounted to ethnic cleansing.
In this video, Islam Channel's NewsTalk presenter Aaqil Ahmed looks at how the Nakba came about and how it continues to define the very existence of Palestinians today.
