69th Anniversary of the UN Partition Plan for Palestine

29 November 2016

Today marks the 69th Anniversary for the UN partition plan for Palestine. The partition plan was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 29 November 1947 in resolution 181 (II). The plan recommended that at the end of the British mandate Palestine should be divided between an Arab State and a Jewish State at the end of the British mandate. The plan also wanted to make Jerusalem an international city administrated by the United Nations.
