Map of Israel at time of establishment as sovereign nation (Palestinian: Al Nakba)(1948)

Ben-Gurion Makes the Declaration

Israel's Declaration of Independence took place on May 14, 1948 shortly before the expiration of the British Mandate. David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister and Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization made the declaration establishing "a Jewish state in Eretz-Israel, to be known as the State of Israel". Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel's Independence Day is celebrated annually.  The borders of Israel and the land of Palestine are illustated in the map below.  Israel's Independence Day is known as Al Nakba (or, the catastrophe) in "Palestinian" communities.
