Timeline: The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: Intro

For millennia, the region known as the Holy Land has been rife with change; a small area has been controlled by biblical kings, early Islamic leaders, and distant empires, among others. When the empires waned, the 20th century saw wars for the land between Jews and Arabs — both of which cite religious and historical ties to the land. The strife continues today, and this timeline provides context behind the conflict.
