Jericho Plan (1974)

A plan proposed by Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal Allon in October 1974, under which Israel was to cede the Jericho area of the West Bank, occupied since the 1967 Six Day War, back to Jordan. This withdrawal was intended to form part of a disengagement agreement between Israel and Jordan, similar to those achieved with Egypt and Syria in the wake of the 1973 War. Further discussion of the plan was postponed until after the 1974 Arab League Summit in Rabat, Morocco. Following the summit, the plan was abandoned, as the League's recognition of the PLO as the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people reduced Jordan's stake in the future of the West Bank.
