Palestinian Territories

The Palestinian territories consist of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, whose final status has yet to be determined. They were originally part of the British Mandate of Palestine, then captured and occupied by Jordan and by Egypt and later captured by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War.
