  • Description

    In Damascus, capital of the United Arab Republic's Syrian region, crowds of Arab refugees from Palestine marched in procession through the streets, May 15, carrying banners with such slogans as "We shall return".

    Similar rallies were held in Cairo, Alexandria and Gaza, the same day, marking as "Palestine Day" the 12th anniversary of the founding of the Israeli state.

    In Cairo, the Arab League's General Secretary, Abdel Khalik Hassouna, appealed to the greet Powers supporting Israel to reconsider their policy. He asked for a "fair policy" towards Arabs and the granting of the legitimate rights of Palestine Arabs. "This is the only way", he said, "to guarantee peace and stability in the Middle East."
