OTD November 29 - Partition Plan
31 / 45
U.S. Central Intelligence Agency

1947: In what's labeled as "The Partition Plan," the United Nations General Assembly recommends the partition of Palestine. The plan would have created independent Arab and Jewish states and a special international regime for the City of Jerusalem. Arab leadership in and out of Palestine objected to the plan and it was never implemented.
