Palestinians take part in a protest against the 100th anniversary of Britain's Balfour Declaration in the West Bank city of Nablus on November 2, 2017, which helped lead to Israel's creation and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas used the occasion to denounce the declaration, writing in a newspaper opinion piece that "the creation of a homeland for one people resulted in the dispossession and continuing persecution of another".
