  • 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.

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:45

Under the proposal, Israel would retain parts of the Golan Heights and West Bank, occupied during the 1967 Six Day War. A Palestinian state would be established on the remaining West Bank territory, as well as the Gaza Strip and adjacent territory ceded by Egypt, with a corridor linking the two parts. Additional territorial exchange between Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria would complete the scheme.

    An agreement between Israel and the PLO concluded in Cairo, Egypt, on 4 May 1994, as part of the Oslo Process. It was signed by Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, and witnessed by the United States, Russia and Egypt. Following the 1993 Declaration of Principles, it made for the partial withdrawal of Israeli forces from the Gaza Strip and the Jericho area. It also formally established the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) as a 24-member body combining executive and legislative powers, which was put in charge of the areas from which Israel was to withdraw. The withdrawal took place as scheduled on 25 May 1994. The Cairo Agreement was followed and superseded by the Interim Agreement of September 1995, turning over additional responsibilities to the PNA.
  • Peel Commission Report (1937)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:34
    The final report issued by the Palestine Royal Commission, better known as the Peel Commission, on 7 July 1937. The Peel Commission was a British Commission of Inquiry appointed to survey the situation in Mandatory Palestine, following the onset of the Arab Revolt, and make recommendations as to future British policy. Identifying Arab grievances over the continued establishment of the Jewish national home as the chief cause for the Revolt, and viewing the national aspirations of both sides as “incompatible”, the Commission recommended the partition of Palestine into three parts: a Jewish state, a territory under British administration and an area to be annexed to Transjordan. It further recommended that the Jerusalem-Bethlehem area, as well as a corridor linking it to Jaffa, be placed under a new Mandate. The 1938 Woodhead Commission was then established to further the prospects of partition.

During the conference, the victorious Allied Powers, chiefly the United States, Britain, France, Italy and Japan, sought to reach an understanding with regard to the political outcomes of the war, especially the status of territories previously controlled by the defeated Central Powers. Zionist representatives to the conference presented their territorial claims, extending over Palestine and areas of the surrounding countries (Transjordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt).
  • UNSCOP Report (1947)

    last update: 2016-01-31 03:23
    The final report issued by the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine (UNSCOP) on 3 September 1947. UNSCOP was established at the request of Britain in order to address the future political status of Palestine. The committee was composed of 11 members, and only heard testimonies from Zionist representatives, as its work was boycotted by the Palestinian Arabs. The committee’s report recommended the termination of the Mandate for Palestine, and introduced two proposals. The majority proposal, endorsed by 7 members, suggested the partition of Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state with an economic union between them, with Jerusalem constituting a corpus separatum falling under a special international regime. The minority proposal, endorsed by 3 delegates, suggested a federal state made up of Jewish and Arab cantons. One delegate abstained. The majority proposal, as altered by an Ad Hoc Committee, was adopted as UNGA Resolution 181 on 29 November 1947. However, it was never implemented, due to the outbreak of the 1948 War. Work Status:
