The British Mandate of Palestine lasted only 26 years. He started 100 years ago

At the San Remo Conference in 1920, it was agreed that the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea (including Jerusalem) would be part of the so-called Jewish national homeland. This decision was confirmed in 1922 by the League of Nations and adopted by the United States Congress. It was finally confirmed by the signing of the international British memorandum on Palestine (the so-called White Paper) from 1925.

After 1945, the conflict between the United Kingdom and the Jews intensified, who accused the British of not being willing to fulfill their obligations and siding with the Arabs. After a series of terrorist attacks on British forces (eg the attack on the King David Hotel) or outraged public opinion in the case of the Exodus ship, the British government gave up its mandate in Palestine in 1947.

On May 14, 1948, the day before the end of the British Mandate of Palestine, the independence of the State of Israel was declared.
