Gaza, ALRAY - Palestinians commemorate today the 26th anniversary of First Intifada which lasted 79 months from 8th of 1987 to 1994.
The revolution began in Gaza, it was later known as the First Intifada. After twenty years of Israeli occupation Palestinian resistance exploded in full force. Boycotts, demonstrations, tax refusal, all of these were the strategies of the Intifada.
Over one thousand Palestinians would be killed by Israel during the Intifada. More than 210,000 Palestinians were imprisoned in Israeli jails since the beginning of the intifada until the signing of Oslo Accords.
For six years the Intifada burned, Palestinians were united in a massive nationwide campaign of popular resistance.
Several Palestinians groups in the Gaza Strip have called for mass rallies in all Palestinians lands to commemorate the anniversary of Intifada.
Intifada Youth Coalition called on his facebook page the Palestinians to gather at 12 o’clock on main squares of each town to” revolt against Israeli occupation as it done before”.
