Palestine was part of the Turkish Empire until the First World War. When Turkey lost the war, Britain took over Palestine.

• Conflicts between Israel and the Arab nations began. Soon, Israel captured Palestine and Palestinians were thrown out from their homeland, so they migrated to various Arab countries.


• Yasser Arafat founded the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and became the president with the objective to establish a nation.
