Historical background

Following World War II, the British withdrew from their mandate of Palestine, and the UN partitioned the area into Arab and Jewish states, an arrangement rejected by the Arabs.

Subsequently, the Israelis defeated the Arabs in a series of wars without ending the deep tensions between the two sides.

The territories Israel occupied since the 1967 war are not included in the Israel country profile, unless otherwise noted.
