The dividing lines between Israel proper and the West Bank are heavily disputed. The demarcation line, called the “green line,” was established by the 1949 Armistices Agreements between Israel and Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. Also referred to as the “1967 borders,” the green line also divides Israel from the territories conquered during the 1967 war against Egypt, Syria, and Jordan.
