Occupied territory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Occupied territory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Israeli position
The use of the terms 'occupied' for these territories has been disputed. Paul S. Riebenfeld, an international lawyer, who represented Jewish interests at the League of Nations, argued that the West Bank and the Gaza Strip do not belong to any other sovereign state, are part of former Mandate Palestine, and therefore fall legitimately within Israel's jurisdiction.
Whether or not Israel still occupies the Gaza Strip, following its unilateral disengagement from there, assuming it can even be considered that it 'occupied' it in the first place, is disputed.[14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22] For more information see also Palestinian National Authority."
