In today’s segment, I would like to take you back to the one of the longest wars in World History—it’s about the conflict between the Palestine and Israel.
The Israeli- Palestinian conflict started in the late 19th century and early 20th century. This is when the major nationalist movements among the Jews and among the Arabs started growing and both geared towards gaining sovereignty for their people in the Middle East territories. The collision between two countries in southern Levant and the evolution of Palestinian nationalism in the 1920s eventually escalated into series of conflicts in the late 1940s, which also result into wider collisions.
In this video, you can see how it all started and how it grew into major conflicts until now.
