Deir Yassin Massacre

As many of you are aware, the massacre at Deir Yassin took place on 9 April, 1948. More than 120 members of the Zionist terror gangs - the Etzel (Irgun) and the Lehi (Stern Gang) attacked the village of between 400 to 600 residents, located on the outskirts of Jerusalem, killing more than 100 women, children and men.

The massacre at Deir Yassin was then used by the Zionist terror forces to terrify and panic the Palestinian population into fleeing their homes and villages - frightened that they too would become victims of a subsequent Zionist massacre (according to Israeli Zionist historian, Benny Morris, at least 24 massacres took place. Morris, however, only counted massacres formally recorded in Zionist documents. Israeli historian, Ilan Pappe argues that oral testimony from Palestinians indicates that the figure was much higher than the 24 documented by Morris).
