TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The University of Haifa on Wednesday canceled an event planned to commemorate the Nakba, or catastrophe, of Palestinians' mass expulsion, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.
The university dean canceled the event when he realized it was to mark the Nakba, Ynet said.
Protesters held Nakba events in the West Bank, Gaza and around the world on Tuesday to mark the razing of Palestinian villages and the forced expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in 1948 during the founding of Israel.
