As the US prepares to move its embassy to the Zionist entity from Tel Aviv to the occupied holy city of al-Quds, Palestinians are preparing for the biggest Great Return March rallies en masse.
The Monday protests, coinciding with the US move, will come a day before the anniversary of the May 15 Palestinian Nakba Day [catastrophe], the day thousands of Palestinians were forced out of their lands and homes in 1948.
Meanwhile, the Zionist military is gearing up for the protests along the Gaza barbed wire, with more than 100,000 Palestinians expected to take part, and claims that hundreds are planning to storm the occupied border.
Earlier on Sunday, "Israel" started festivities to celebrate the embassy's opening.
Every year on May 15, Palestinians all over the world hold demonstrations to commemorate the day, which marks the anniversary of the forcible eviction of hundreds of thousands of Palestinian landowners from their homes by Zionist occupiers in 1948.
Since 1948, the occupation regime has denied Palestinian refugees the right to return, despite UN resolutions and international law that uphold people's right to return to their homelands.
The ‘Israeli' forces occupied the West Bank, East al-Quds and parts of Syria's Golan Heights during the Six-Day War in 1967. It later annexed East al-Quds in a move not recognized by the international community.
The Zionist entity is required to withdraw from all the territories seized in the war under UN Security Council Resolution 242, adopted months after the Six-Day War, in November 1967, but the Tel Aviv regime has defied that piece of international law ever since.
