Naksa: 50th anniversary of Israeli-Arab War marked

June 5 marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of 1967 Arab-Israeli War, in which Israel defeated the armies of Egypt, Syria and Jordan in six days. Israeli troops occupied the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. A ceasefire was signed on June 11.
For Palestinians living there it marked the start of a half-century of occupation.

Al Jazeera‘s Harry Fawcett reports from the occupied Palestinian territory in Gaza, where he met people who continued to be affected by the legacy of the war.
