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 The Cairo Agreement was followed and superseded by the Interim Agreement of September 1995, turning over additional responsibilities to the PNA.

    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.

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.

  • 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.

Following World War I, it became the international border between Egypt and Mandatory Palestine.
