How did the conflict start? (Israel's military occupation)

How did the conflict start? (Israel's military occupation)

In 1967, Israel won another war with its Arab neighbours and put the remaining 2 Palestinian territories (West Bank & Gaza) under military occupation.

Reasoning behind the occupation:

  • protect Israelis from Palestinian attacks
  • provide security against foreign invasions.

However these excuses do not explain the settlers who move into Palestinian territories for cheaper housing & expansion of borders in a bid for ethnic cleansing.
