The lighting victory of Israel in the so-called 6-Day War saw the geographic and democratic face of Palestine change considerably. The Golan Heights were taken from Syria while Sinai was taken from Egypt, but Israel and its forces driven the Jordan legion and the Egyptian Army from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. The main problem is that the re-percussions of the spring offensive in 1967 had their great influence on Palestine.
The territory under the Old Palestine Mandate was united, and Israel brought the Palestinian inhabitants under its control. Besides, this war changed the approaches of Palestinian authorities for the quest of their autonomy and different dynamics of this well-known and long-term conflict. It’s undeniable that the reemergence of the Palestinian dimension after this war changed the entire scope of this conflict.
This famous conflict drifted from its historical roots into some new dimension for Jews and Arabs alike. For example, after the war in 1948, this conflict seemed to mostly develop into an international affair. Many armistice agreements inflicted by border tensions, imperial powers, and the Suez War all saw sovereign states acting as major players in this conflict. At that time, Israel seemed to be beleaguered and small, encased by larger states bent on their existence illegitimacy.
However, the following war drifted this focus to a more general issue because two nations, Palestinians and Jews, claimed the same land. The status change of this territory within this region after the 6-Day War was the main motivator towards the reemergence of a fresh Palestinian dimension of this conflict. Its sphere of influence was extended across all newly occupied zones, including the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, so Israel had more influence and power at that time.
In general, this conflict is a volatile and dangerous situation that attracts the attention of many countries and people nowadays. It’s definitely quite a sensitive subject that produces strong emotions in different nations and it deals with politics, distribution of resources, and other similar matters. Hopefully, people will find effective solutions to this conflict that will allow them to avoid unnecessary deaths and violence. Seemingly, it can’t be solved only between Israel and Palestine on their own, so it requires international influence.
