The Balfour Declaration led to the creation of the state of Israel and the dispossession of the Palestinians from their homeland.

Al Jazeera met one man in Gaza who remembers the final years of British Mandate Palestine.

Mohammed al-Buhaisi fought with other Palestinians against the armed Zionist groups that attacked villages before the creation of Israel.

Thousands of Palestinians were forced to flee their homes after the Balfour Declaration stated British intentions to create a Zionist sanctuary in Palestine.
