It has been revealed that the remains of dozens of Palestinians killed during the Israeli-Arab in 1948 were found in six mass graves in the Jaffa district of Tel Aviv on Wednesday.
The graves were found when ground subsided as builders carried out renovation work in the area, an official at the Muslim cemetery there told AFP.
The bodies are believed to belong to the victims of a massacre carried out by right-wing Jewish militias in the former Arab district.
As-Safri newspaper reported that up to 200 bodies may be in the graves, with an unknown additional number in the other graves.
'The remains belong to people of different ages, including women, children and the elderly, some of which bear signs of violence,' Researcher and historian Mahmoud Obeid said.
Around 760,000 Palestinians were forced out of their homes in the war, many of them still living as refugees in Jordan.
In a joint statement, the G7 leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States, along with the European Union, said they "are united in rejecting the electoral process" that led to the May 20 ballot.
