According to the statistics by UNRWA, currently, there are 58 refugee camps, and 7 million Palestinian people displacement.

Secretary-general of Royal Committee for Jerusalem Affairs (RCJA), Abdullah Kanaan said Zionists took over 774 Palestinian villages and cities during Nakba, 531 of which were destroyed, and its people who suffered 70 massacres, the Jordan News Agency, Petra reported.

In 1967, Kanaan said about 176 Israeli settlements and 186 outposts were established on the entire territory of the occupied Palestinian West Bank, bearing Hebrew names with mythical biblical and Talmudic overtones.

The purpose of this was to erase the Palestinian Arab historical identity and spread a Zionist narrative as an alternative to Palestinian history.

RCJA emphasized that the world and its legitimate organizations should assume a "moral and humanitarian" responsibility and address the conditions of Nakba on the Palestinian people.

Kanaan believes that the international community faces a true test to assess its seriousness, to stop the policy of double standards and unjustified bias towards Israel, and immediately demand Israel to comply with international legitimacy resolutions.

Kanaan added that this effort should focus on achieving the two-state solution and establishing the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.

RCJA affirms its support for the Palestinian people as its key policy, based on Jordan's "firm and solid historic" role.
