  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Egyptian-Ottoman Boundary Agreement (1906)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:31
    An agreement signed between the Ottoman Empire and British-controlled Egypt in Rafah on 1 October 1906, establishing the border between the Egyptian Sinai and the Ottoman provinces of Hejaz and Jerusalem. As Egypt was still nominally under the authority of the Ottoman Empire, the line was described as an internal administrative boundary. Following World War I, it became the international border between Egypt and Mandatory Palestine.
  • Zionist Movement’s Territorial Claims at the Paris Peace Conference (1919)

    A map showing the territorial boundaries of the Land of Israel (Palestine) as claimed by the Zionist movement during the Paris Peace Conference in February 1919.
  • Franco-British Agreement on Mandatory Borders (1920)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:30
    An agreement between Britain and France establishing the border between their Mandatory territories of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. The agreement followed the division of mandates established at the San Remo Conference, but preceded the establishment of the actual mandates in 1922. The border between British-controlled Palestine and French-controlled Lebanon and Syria was amended by a further agreement in 1923.
  • Sykes-Picot (Asia Minor) Agreement (1916)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:28
    A secret agreement concluded on 16 May 1916 between Britain and France, dividing the Middle East into spheres of influence ahead of a possible victory against the Ottoman Empire in World War I.
  • Sinai War (1956)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:33
    Also known as the Suez Crisis, and in Israel as Operation Kadesh. Following the nationalization of the Suez Canal by Egyptian President Nasser, Israel invaded the Sinai Peninsula with British and French support, under a secret agreement with Britain and France that was supposed to allow the two powers to regain control of the Canal. Israel managed to occupy the entire Peninsula (including the Gaza Strip) from Egypt, but American and Soviet pressure, and internal criticism in Britain, brought about a ceasefire followed by a full Israeli withdrawal.
  • West Bank Separation Barrier - Phase D

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:41
    Reference map of Phase D of the West Bank Separation Barrier. This phase complements the previous phases by adding sections in the northern West Bank and around Jerusalem, and in addition mostly follows the Green Line from south of Jerusalem around the southern West Bank, ending several kilometers west of the Dead Sea. This phase of the barrier was partially completed by 2006, but remains unfinished as of 2014.
