1948 Nakba War of Independence
Akevot Institute for Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Research have

Testimonies and classified documents about Israel’s atrocities from the 1948 Nakba/War of Independence, including previously obscured massacres, are beginning to be revealed despite attempts to conceal them. While Israel’s Malmab unit (Hebrew acronym which stands for the “director of security of the defense establishment”) has been selectively removing evidence of war crimes from the government archives, historians, Haaretz, and the Akevot Institute for Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Research have succeeded at making many of these testimonies available to the public. These atrocities committed by the Israel Defense Forces includes targeting unarmed, Arab men, women, and children.
