I AM A REFUGEE IN MY OCCUPIED COUNTRY
I live in Jabalia refugee camp which is not my original place of my family … my original village is Hulayqat which has occupied by Israeli occupation in 18th of October 1948 . It is 20.5 (km) North East of Gaza and it 's Elevation from the sea is 100 (meters) ..
Land ownership before occupation :7,063 Dunums which belongs to Arab 6,902 and for Public 161 Dunums , 6,751 Dunums are cultivable .
Number of houses : In (1931) was 61 .
Archeological site : Hulayqat had many khirbats which contained cisterns, a pool, and fragments of marble and pottery .
Town Today :
According to the Palestinian historian Walid Khalidi, the village remaining structures on the village land are:
"The site is partially forested. There are sycalllore and Christ's-thorn trees and cactuses growing on the site. One of the old roads has been covered by a modern street.
Everyone in this world have to know that Palestinians have the right of return which based on United Nations adopted Resolution 194 on December 11, 1948. I am sure that I will go to Hulayqat to run up our Palestinian flag , re_ built the destryed houses , plant the farm and build schools and foundations to educate our people . I will teach generations Dabka to reserve our Palestinian heritage .
