Israeli–Palestinian conflict

Recently in the West Bank, the US president said he supports a “two-state solution”, but the time is not right for Israel-Palestine talks.

The US president has said that a “two-state solution” is the best way to resolve disputes between Palestine and Israel. This will help in achieving equal level of security, prosperity, freedom and democracy for both sides.

Israel-Palestine Conflict: Chronology

  1. 1947: The United Nations adopted Resolution 181 (Partition Plan). Under this, a provision was made to divide Palestine under the control of the United Kingdom into Arab and Jewish states.
  2. 1948: The British Mandate on Palestine ends, and the State of Israel is created. This started the First Arab-Israeli War.
  3. 1949: The war ends with the victory of Israel. Palestine was divided into 3 parts: the State of Israel, the West Bank (west of the Jordan River), and the Gaza Strip.
  4. 1967: After the Six-Day War, Israel annexed the Gaza Strip from Egypt and the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan.
  5. 1993: The government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) agree on a plan to implement a ‘two-state solution’ as a part of the Oslo Accords.

Current Status:

  • Israel still occupies the West Bank, however, it has withdrawn from Gaza.
  • Israel claims the whole of Jerusalem as its capital. Palestine claims East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state.
