Naksa Day (6 June) (Arabic: يوم النكسة‎, Yawm an-Naksa) commemorates the Naksa ("setback"), the mass displacement and dispossession of Palestinians during and after the 1967 Six-Day War between Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria.[1] The first mass displacement, known as the Nakba, took place during and after the 1947–1948 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine and the 1948 Arab-Israeli War. It is marked on Nakba Day.
