The 1949 armistice delineated the de facto partition of mandate Palestine. The ‘Green Line’ as it was known provided international recognition of the border that separated Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip for twenty years, until the 1967 war changed the shape of the conflict. ‘Occupation 1967–87’ looks at this stormy period in the Palestinian–Israeli conflict. Israeli's defeat of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan over just six days in 1967 had far-reaching implications. On the one hand it increased the amount of territory held by Israel; on the other hand the scale and speed of Israel's victory introduced complacency to the idea of accommodation and territorial compromise.
