Nobody Prayed For These People: Diggers Find Nakba-Era Mass Graves

by

Workers at a cemetery restoration project in Jaffa have discovered six mass graves with hundreds of skeletons of Palestinians killed during the 1948 Nakba and the 1936 uprising, thus corroborating oral testimony by eyewitnesses of massacres and hasty burials in Jaffa and the surrounding area. Israeli commentators are already frantically arguing the victims could have been killed by the British, other Arabs, or pretty much anyone else as long as they weren't Jewish. Awful. Warning: Grisly images.
