February 17, 1954: The Israeli delegation complains that two Arabs crossed the demarcation line to Israel on February 16, 1018-0992. According to the complaint, they began to flee when they were challenged by Israeli guards, and the fire that had been opened on them was hit and fired by the second on the demarcation line. On January 6, 1949, Dr. Ralph Bunche announced that Egypt had finally agreed to begin talks with Israel for a ceasefire. Discussions began on 12 January on the Greek island of Rhodes. Shortly after its launch, Israel accepted the release of a besieged Egyptian brigade in Faluja, but was quick to reach an agreement.  At the end of the month, the talks failed. Israel has asked Egypt to withdraw all its troops from the former Palestinian territory. [Citation required] Egypt insisted that, in accordance with Security Council Resolution S/1070 of 4 November 1948, Arab forces should withdraw from their positions on 14 October 1948 and withdraw from positions north of Majdal-Hebron Street. During the six-day war, Israel occupied territories beyond the Green Line, inhabited by more than a million Palestinian Arabs, including refugees from the 1947-1949 war.  The Green Line remained the administrative border between these territories (except Jerusalem) and the territories on the Israeli side of the Green Line. To really unpack this sentence, we need to look at two terms: “1967 lines” and “mutually agreed swaps.” President Obama`s speech on the Middle East lasted about 45 minutes yesterday, but a solitary line sparked disproportionate coverage and controversy: “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps.
And on Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the 1967 borders a second time in a meeting that he and President Obama had just finished in the Oval Office (pictured above), as “indefensible.” Why did Obama`s 17-word peace proposal turn out to be such a lightning rod? March 23, 1954: The Israeli government has severed all ties with the Joint Armistice Commission. It also ceased to participate in local assemblies of commanders under a separate Israeli-Jordanian agreement. Communications on Israel concerning alleged violations of Jordan`s general ceasefire agreement have been addressed to the UN Secretary-General and asked him to pass them on to the members of the Security Council. The Chief of Staff of the Jerusalem Ceasefire Monitoring Organization was not informed of such alleged violations of the General Ceasefire Agreement until he received a copy of the Security Council document from New York. The non-participation of the Israeli government prevented the investigation of such alleged violations, in accordance with the provisions of the General Ceasefire Agreement. Whether, or to what extent, Israel should withdraw its people and forces from the Green Line remains a crucial topic in some discussions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. There is an almost unanimous international consensus that Israel should withdraw by its side. This was expressed in the annual vote of the Un General Assembly on the peaceful settlement of the Palestinian issue.  Although challenged by Israel, UN Security Council Resolution 242 (UNSC 242) declared the interpretation of international law with respect to Palestinian territory. Syria has withdrawn its troops from most of the areas it controlled west of the international border, which have become demilitarized zones. The Area held by Syria, located west of the 1923 Palestinian border and attributed to the Jewish state under the Undividing plan, was 66 square kilometres in the Jordan Valley.  These areas have been designated as Demilitarized Zones (DMZs) and have remained under Syrian control.
