  • The Israili's were building on the Arabs already occupied land, so the Arabs wanted to take their land back.
  • Arab states had a joined war against Israel due to the UN's mandate to keep Palestine Jewish.
  • Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt joined together in attempt to gain back their land.
  • After many attacks all seemed lost for the Israeli's but they ended up fighting off the coalition.
  • Series of truces failed to stop the fighting, but after a year of lethal fighting, a cease-fire was in 1949.
