The Green Line

Share

The Green Line is a term used to describe the armistice point in 1949 (after Israel’s War of Independence) where Israel’s army and surrounding Egyptian & Jordanian armies stopped fighting. It is called the Green Line because diplomats used green markers to delineate the armistice lines after the war. But the Green Line is often misunderstood or misrepresented to be a border, which it’s not. It’s merely where the respective armies stopped fighting in 1949.
