1967 “Border” vs. Armistice Line


As written above, the “1967 border” is in actuality the 1949 armistice line where no country agreed that a border would lie. It was merely where fighting stopped in 1949. It is often used incorrectly to refer to 1967, but it would be more accurate to call it the “pre-1967 armistice line.” This is an important distinction because any final status agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority will certainly include agreements on land, but it is categorically untrue that the basis for negotiations should be where armies happened to have stopped fighting in 1949.
