A committee of displaced Palestinian residents of the Palestinian village of Tantura has prepared a report identifying the locations of mass graves of the massacre that took place in the village 75 years ago, some of which were previously unknown.
These findings followed an investigation conducted by the committee in cooperation with the Adalah Center and Forensic Architecture over a year and a half, which included map analysis and aerial photographs before and after the occupation of the village, as well as numerous testimonies.
The committee identified four mass grave sites and said its findings would establish a legal path towards obtaining Israel's recognition of the massacre and the inviolability of those mass graves, allowing the families of the victims to bury them properly.
About 1500,23 Palestinians lived in the village of Tantura, south of Haifa, before Zionist gangs occupied it on May 1948, 200, committing a mass massacre of more than <> Palestinians.
