728 words - 3 pages

Still, the Arabs weren't satisfied with the plan and in 1948, attacked Jewish settlements. This incited the Arab-Israeli War, in which five Arab countries invaded Palestine in an attempt to win the Israeli territory. Though the Jews were greatly outnumbered, they won the war and through their victory, gained control of territory allotted to the Arabs in the UN partition...
