The Palestinian flag will be hoisted on rooftops in Palestinian cities as the annual marches have been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Land Day marks the time when Israeli forces shot and killed six Palestinians in Arab towns inside Israel during protests on March 30, 1976, against Israeli expropriation of thousands of dunums of Palestinian land in the Upper Galilee in the north of the country.

With gatherings everywhere in the world banned in order to combat the spread of coronavirus, the Palestinians decided that the best way to keep this memory alive is to raise the red, white, green and black Palestinian flag on rooftops and balconies of every Palestinian home.
