Ruins of the village of Sumeiriya, just north of Acre, typifying the fate of nearly four hundred Palestinian villages by the end of 1948.

Tens of thousands of Palestinians who were expelled from the towns and villages of Galilee sought refuge across the border in Lebanon, where they constituted the core of the Palestinian refugee population in that country.
