Eilaboun is an Arab Palestinian village which is located on
the far west of the sea of Galilee, inhabited by Christians and Muslims, its
population reaches 5000 and it spreads over 4800 acres.
Eilaboun is considered to be a peaceful village. The
people of Eilaboun enjoy high standard of civilization in a variety of fields
and are open to the outer world in spite of all the difficulties that they face
in social and economical areas in addition to lack of local sovereignty over
lands needed for normal increase in population.
It was occupied on the 30th.10.1948. and it was
absolutely a painful day which had the massacre. During the massacre 14 young
men were killed in cold blood. Its people were forced to abandon the village on
foot towards the north heading to Lebanon which was 150 km away. After 50 days
