SAN DIEGO – The Palestinian Youth Movement’s San Diego chapter on Saturday organized one of the largest marches the city has seen this year to show support for Palestinians caught in the conflict over the Gaza Strip, which has also prompted rallies from local pro-Israel groups in recent days.

May 15 is when Palestinians commemorate the Day of al-Nakba, or “the Catastrophe,” remembering the estimated 700,000 people who were expelled from or fled their homes during the 1948 war surrounding Israel’s creation. This year, the escalating conflict between Israel and Palestine looms behind the annual commemoration.
