General Armistice Agreements, 1949

GENERAL ARMISTICE AGREEMENTS, 1949

By January 1949 all Arab belligerents in the 1948–1949 War were ready to accept the United Nations Security Council's call for a general truce. The first to accept formally was Egypt, on 5 January. Negotiations began on 13 January in Rhodes, under the supervision of UN undersecretary Ralph Bunche. Egypt signed a General Armistice Agreement with Israel on 24 February 1949, followed on 23 March by Lebanon, on 3 April by Jordan, and on 20 July by Syria. Iraq, which has no common border with Israel, refused to negotiate. These agreements established the border between Israel and its neighbors, including the Green Line between Israel and the West Bank, which lasted until the June 1967 War

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
