A decree published by the Government of Israel on 28 June 1967, by which Israeli administration and jurisdiction were unilaterally extended to East Jerusalem and neighboring villages, recently taken over from Jordan during the Six Day War. The annexation was denounced by UN General Assembly Resolutions 2253 and 2254, but was given further validity under Israeli law with the Jerusalem Basic Law of 1980.
