Remember on this day in 1953 the Qibya massacre

On this day, the 15th of October, 59 years ago, the massacre of "Qibya" led by Ariel Sharon, and the Israeli Occupation forces took place, killing 69 Palestinians, 2/3 being women and children. Forty-five houses, a school, and a mosque were destroyed in one night. This, of course, is just one of many massacres that have been perpetrated against the indigenous people of Palestine since 1948.
