STRUGGLING SINCE DECADES:
For more than 70 years the conflict between Israel & Palestine has affected the Middle East. Palestine has suffered multiple land seizures due to its importance to many religions. Jews and Muslims have fought over this piece of land claiming it to be theirs.
BUDDING OF THE CONFLICT:
After 2 decades of British rule in 1947 United Nations proposed a plan according to which Palestine was to be divided into two separate nations, one was an independent Jewish state and the other was Palestine. The conflict began when both nations claimed Jerusalem as their capital which was then given a special status by UN.
RENDEZVOUS WITH WAR:
After Britain left Israel started a war with 5 Arab nations in order to seize Jerusalem. At the end of the war in 1948, Israel took more than two-thirds of what was actually decided by the British mandate.
Hamas was founded in 1987. Their target was to free Palestinian area from Israeli occupation. Israel and Hamas fought many wars and still are.
HOW THINGS STANDS AS IF NOW:
Palestinians are still fighting. They have been denied the basic right to claim their homeland which was agreed at the time of partition. According to the world report of the human rights watch, numerous people have died by the hands of Israel. They are struggling to make their ends meet. Hundreds of buildings and homes have been destroyed and such inhumane violence still continues.
Israel has displaced many Palestinians and has forced them to go into refuge and they are struggling to get even the basic human rights. Israel continues to use excessive force and is causing imminent threat to life. Israel is subjecting Palestinians to subjugation and oppression.
On 21st May a ceasefire was signed between Israel and Palestine, still Israel continues to violate the agreement and violate human rights. They keep on killing without discriminating between women or children.
