What Is The 1949 Armistice Agreement Line

December 20, 2020

From the beginning, Arab-Israeli GAAs have been tormented by discord and disagreement. A fundamental disagreement was the extent of the responsibility that States Parties had to bear for criminal and often violent activities of irregularities that crossed the lines. The scale of such infiltration in the early 1950s has alarmed Israelis and the inability of UNTSO and several Arab states to effectively contain them has led to severe reprisals by the Israel Defense Force (IDF), which themselves have violated THE PDOs. Perhaps the most serious disagreement was about the nature of the agreements signed. While Israel regarded them as finite borders for demarcation lines and waiting for the final stage of signing comprehensive peace agreements, Arab states interpreted them only as long-term ceasefire agreements that did not end their belligerent status and did not give a lasting character to their various provisions. On 29 March 1954, at 07:00 local time, the Jordanian delegation lodged an oral complaint with the Chairman of the Joint Ceasefire Commission concerning an incident that occurred on 29 March 1954 at 7 a.m. local time in the village of Nahhalin, about 35 kilometres from the demarcation line. , throwing grenades and mines at some houses, including the village mosque. In this brutal attack, 9 people were killed, 8 men and one woman were killed, 14 others were injured and taken to hospital. The fire lasted about an hour and a half and was brought back by the village guards. Then the attackers withdrew.

Mines, grenades and other martial materials with Hebrew markings were found at the scene. This complaint was confirmed by the Joint Ceasefire Commission. From August to September 2005, Israel implemented a unilateral withdrawal plan that evacuated the entire Jewish population from the Gaza Strip. In 2006, Ehud Olmert proposed a convergence plan that called on Israel to unilaterally detach itself from much of the West Bank (east of the line), if necessary. In the Knesset, the then Foreign Minister and future Prime Minister, Mosche Sharett, described the ceasefire lines as “temporary borders” and the former international borders on which the ceasefire lines, with the exception of Jordan, were based, as “natural borders”. [13] Israel did not claim territories beyond these territories and suggested them: With minor changes, except in Gaza, as the basis of permanent political borders at the Lausanne Conference of 1949. [14] 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 Israeli side of the green line. The territory of the line described in point a) and from point 402 to the southernmost point of Palestine, by a straight line that marks half the distance between the Egypt-Palestinian and Trans-Jordanian-Palestinian border.
