Until 15 May 1948 Arabs had been living in the territories which was to become the state of Israel. From that date about 600,000 became refugees and only 150,000 remained under Israeli rule. Of these refugees 200,000 setteled on the West Bank. The West Bank was annexed to Jordan two years later, and they became Jordanian citizens. Another 100,000 crossed to Jordan on the east bank of the Jordan river. The 200,000 palestinian arabs who fled to the Egyptian controlled Gaza strip were not granted citizenship and the remaining 100,000 went to Syria, Lebanon and other Arab states. For more than 40 years Palestinian has tried to prove that all the refugees were expelled by Israel, while Israel has tried to prove that they all left of thire own accord. These efforts will probably continue even after peaceful solution is found to the Israeli Palestinian conflict.
