Proposals for a Palestinian state currently refers to the proposed establishment of an independent state for the Palestinian people in Palestinian territories that have been occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War of 1967 and before by Egypt (Gaza) and by Jordan (West Bank) since 1949. The proposals include the Gaza Strip, which is currently controlled by the Hamas faction of the Palestinian National Authority, the West Bank, which is administered by the Fatah faction of the Palestinian National Authority, and East Jerusalem which is under Israeli sovereignty.[1]

The proclaimed State of Palestine is currently recognized by over 100 countries.[2][3] The Israeli military commander exercises usufructuary rights in accordance with international law, but he is not the legal sovereign of the disputed territory.[4] The permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people over the natural resources of the Palestinian territories has been recognized by 139 countries. Under agreements reached with Israel, the Palestinian Authority exercises de jure control over many natural resources, while interim cooperation arrangements are in place for others.[5]
