He has said that Israel can not accept the Islamic republic entrenching itself militarily in the war-torn country, where Tehran is backing President Bashar Assad's regime.

Celebrated on the fifth day of the month of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar, Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrates the formal establishment of the State of Israel.

Thousands of Arab Israelis participated in a "March of Return", demanding a right to go back to the homes that they claim they - or their parents or grandparents - left behind in 1948. "The children of Barwa, the children of Atlit, and the children of Iqrit must return", he added, naming several depopulated Palestinian villages.

Tarabeh was one of a number of political figures who attended the rally, along with parliamentarians from the Arab Joint List bloc.

Dozens of Palestinians were killed and more than 2,500 others were injured by the Israeli forces since the protests started on March 30. "It is a conscious move and a unified Palestinian discourse saying that return unites us".
