Israeli Palestinian Conflict

The Israeli Palestinian conflict goes back to the early days of the State of Israel and is primarily centered over both territorial disputes regarding the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, as well as in a perceived existential threat.

Israel claims the Palestinians, ruled by the Palestinian Authority based in the West Bank and Hamas based in Gaza, have no desire to achieve peace and want to completely eradicate the Jewish presence from the land. 

The Palestinians claim Israel acts as a brutal occupation of the Palestinians, subjecting them to an apartheid rule. 

There have been many attempts to bridge the gap between the two sides before, most famously the two Oslo Accords, but they have yet to achieve success.

Fighting between the two sides tends to manifest in the form of popular Palestinian uprisings known as intifadas, the launching of rockets and machine gun fire, retaliatory airstrikes and artillery fire and even armed operations.

The conflict and possible resolutions to it remain highly divisive issues both within Israel and among the international community.
