The first year of Israel's independence: a selection of historical photographs

The first year of Israel's independence: a selection of historical photographs
Against the background of the tragic events that are currently taking place on the territory of Israel, it is immediately remembered how the path of this country began. May 14, 1948 was a historic day for Israel, because the Declaration of Independence was proclaimed.

The declaration of independence was preceded by UN General Assembly Resolution No. 181, adopted on November 19, 1947, which provided for the termination of the British mandate and the division of Palestine into two states - Jewish and Arab.
The next day, 5 Arab countries attacked the Israelis. It is believed that this was the beginning of the "War for Independence", which lasted from 1948 to 1949. During the time of the already independent state, there were several wars and local conflicts, the confrontation of which continues to this day.

Israel's first year of independence was a time of resilience and many challenges, as the fledgling state struggled for its existence amid regional upheaval.
In the first years of independence, population migration began against the backdrop of the war, and there was a massive increase in Jewish migrants, many of whom survived the Holocaust. Along with this, Israel faced economic difficulties due to the stress of the war and the absorption of large numbers of immigrants. The government introduced austerity measures and relied on foreign aid to solve these problems.

Despite these challenges, Israel's first year of independence was marked by growing international recognition. The events of that year laid the foundation for today's Israel, a dynamic and prosperous nation seeking peace and prosperity in a volatile region.

This is occupation, not independence. It is enough to distort the facts and falsify history
