    A “national defense scheme” for the Jewish population in Palestine authored by Elimelech ‘Avner’ Zelikowitz, a member of the Haganah, the largest Zionist militia, in June 1937. The plan was prepared in response to a request by Haganah leadership, ahead of the possible termination of the Mandate for Palestine and outbreak of a Jewish-Arab civil war. The scheme detailed the military, financial and territorial outlines of the Jewish war effort, based on a phased advancement from north to south.

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.

  • 1973 War

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:07
    Known in the Arab world as the October War, and in Israel as the Yom Kippur War, a war fought between Israel, Syria and Egypt in October 1973. The war began with a surprise attack by Egyptian and Syrian forces in the midst of the Jewish fast of Yom Kippur. Despite their initial advances in Sinai and the Golan Heights, respectively, the Israeli forces repelled the Egyptians and Syrians and managed to cross the Suez Canal. Towards the end of the war, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 338, calling for a ceasefire and negotiations based on Resolution 242. The war ended with a ceasefire, followed in early 1974 by separate disengagement agreements with Egypt and Syria. Though the aftermath of the war saw the territorial status quo remain largely unchanged, within several years Israel and Egypt would sign a peace treaty, involving an Israeli withdrawal from Sinai. Following the war, the Agranat Commission was set up in Israel to investigate possible failures in the Israeli political and military leadership in preparing for the war. The publication of the commission's report triggered a political crisis that led to the resignation of Prime Minister Golda Meir and Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan. Casualties in the war numbered over 2,000 on the Israeli side, and several thousand on the Arab site.

  • 1982 Lebanon War

    last update: 2016-01-31 04:42
    A war between Israel on the one hand, and the PLO and Syria on the other, which broke out on 5 June 1982. The war began as a limited Israeli operation (Operation Peace for Galilee) against PLO strongholds in southern Lebanon, following sustained attacks against civilians in the north of Israel, as well as the attempted assassination of the Israeli ambassador to the United Kingdom. Israeli operations were extended as it became embroiled in the ongoing Lebanese Civil War, and Israel eventually occupied large parts of Lebanon, including western Beirut. In what became known as the Sabra and Shatila Massacre, Christian militias attacked two Palestinian refugee camps in Beirut, killing hundreds to thousands of civilians. Under intense Israeli pressure, the PLO leadership relocated from Beirut to Tunis in 1982. In 1983, a non-belligerency treaty was signed between Israel and the Christian-backed Lebanese government, but it was cancelled the following year. By 1985, Israel gradually withdrew its forces from most of Lebanon, forming the South Lebanon Security Zone. Low-intensity warfare between Israel, the Israeli-allied militia South Lebanon Army and Hezbollah continued until Israel's complete withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000, thereby implementing UNSC Resolution 425 of 1978.

  • Jewish Agency Partition Proposal to the Woodhead Commission (1938)

    last update: 2016-01-31 05:33
    A proposal submitted by the Jewish Agency, chaired by David Ben-Gurion, to the Woodhead Commission, a British Royal Commission mandated with drawing up proposals for the partition of Palestine. The proposal was examined in Chapters IX (Jerusalem) and XII (the rest of Palestine) of the Commission’s final report, published in November 1938. Its proposed borders for the Jewish state included all of the Galilee, most of the coastal plain and a corridor linking it to the Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The Arab state was to include today’s northern West Bank, the northern Negev and Jaffa, with the rest - including a corridor linking the Jerusalem area to Jaffa through the Lydda airport - remaining under Mandatory control.
