Palestinians wave national flags as they demonstrate on the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in the Old City of Jerusalem to mark the 67th anniversary of the Nakba on May 15, 2015. 'Nakba' means in Arabic 'catastrophe' in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 67-years-ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
