    last update: 2016-01-31 04:53
    A law enacted by the Knesset on 18 February 2005, by a vote of 59 For, 40 Against, 5 Abstaining. The law contained measures related to the implementation of the Disengagement Plan, proposed in 2003-4 by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, by which Israel was to withdraw all military and civilian presence from the Gaza Strip and parts of the northern West Bank. The law is most known for providing arrangements for compensation to be given for residences and businesses evacuated, and is thus nicknamed the “Evacuation-Compensation Law” in Israel. The withdrawal was approved by the Government of Israel in February 2005 and implemented in August 2005.

The agreement, signed by the chiefs of staff of both armies, was specifically mentioned not to be a “final peace agreement”, but the first step towards peace. A similar agreement was signed between Israel and Syria on 31 May 1974.

  • Latrun No Man’s Land (1949-1967)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:50
    A strip of territory 1-3km wide, roughly 20km north-west of Jerusalem, which became a de facto no man’s land between Israel and Jordan as a result of the 1949 Israel-Jordan Armistice Agreement. It came under full Israeli control as a result of the 1967 Six Day War. Most of the international community views the area as occupied Palestinian territory, along with the adjacent West Bank. The main highway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (Route 1) was built through the area in 1979, and a high-speed rail line connecting the two cities, also passing through the area, is currently under construction.

  • Map of the Southern Coastal Aquifer

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:46
    Reference map showing the limits of the Southern Coastal Aquifer, extending from the central Israeli coastal plain to the Gaza Strip. An aquifer is an underground layer of rock, sand or silt from which groundwater can be extracted. This aquifer is an important source of water for both Israel and the Gaza Strip, but is considered to be in danger of depletion, pollution or salinization due to excessive pumping and the growth of urban areas and industrial activity.

  • 2006 Lebanon War

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:47
    A war between Israel and Hezbollah that took place on 12 July–14 August 2006. The immediate cause of the war was a Hezbollah operation against an IDF patrol that left three soldiers dead and two missing, followed by widespread retaliation ordered by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Initially conceived as a limited operation to end low-intensity Hezbollah attacks occurring since the 2000 Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon, it eventually became a full-scale invasion that led to extensive damage and civilian casualties in Lebanon. Most combat operations occurred in southern Lebanon, with extensive Israeli airstrikes on Hezbollah strongholds in Beirut and commando operations in the Beqaa Valley. During the war, Hezbollah, under the leadership of Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, fired thousands of rockets and missiles on localities in northern Israel. The war ended with a ceasefire mandated by UNSC Resolution 1701, including a reinforced UNIFIL mandate and the deployment of the Lebanese Army in the south. Israel completed its withdrawal from Lebanese territory in October 2006.
