"The camps will be created in about a kilometer from the border with Israel… For the beginning we expect that hundreds of thousands of Palestinians will spend three days in a row in the tent camps with electricity, water and ambulance cars… After that, the organizing committee will make a decision on further steps taking into account the situation and the response of Israel," Hani Taubta said.
The organizers add that they had no plans to cross the border or to come to it in the near future, but they admit that the protesters could make attempt to clash with Israeli servicemen.
"The main part of the march will take place on May 15 in Palestine and abroad. We expect that millions will participate in it and maybe reach the borders of Israel," Taubta said.
The event dubbed "The Great Return March" will start on Friday and is dedicated to the so-called Land Day commemorating the day in 1976, when Israeli troops killed six Arabs protesting against confiscation of land. On May 15, the Palestinians will commemorate Nakba (disaster in Arabic), when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were displaced after Israel announced its independence in 1948.
The protest is organized by such groups as the Hamas movement, the Fatah party, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine among others.
