Palestinian activists have circulated photos of metal covers of sewage works in the cities of Haifa and Jaffa, which they said are older than the state of Israel itself. The covers were clearly emblazoned with the name of Palestine and its emblem.
Activists have said that these covers prove the existence of the State of Palestine upon which Israel established a state. They added that the Israeli claim denying the existence of Palestinians has thus been proven baseless.
The covers were made in the Palestine Iron and Brass Foundry in 1931.

Activists tweeted: “Our sewage system existed before you did,” and “Our sewage system condemns you.”
Israel has tried to remove some of these covers and replace them with new ones, with Hebrew writing, a move local Palestinians in Haifa and Jaffa have protested.
