Naksa Day is the annual day of commemoration for the Palestinian people of the displacement that accompanied Israel's victory in the 1967 Six-Day War. As a result of the war, Israel took control of the Palestinian-populated West Bank and Gaza Strip, which were previously annexed by Jordan and controlled by Egypt, respectively. The first displacement, known as the Nakba, took place during and after the 1948 Palestine war. It is marked annually on Nakba Day on May 15. (via Freebase)
