    Abstract:
    Israel and Palestine have been embroiled in conflict ever since the State of Israel was founded. Land control has often been a contentious issue. Over 1300 persons were taken prisoner and over 1300 were killed when the Palestinian Hamas movement attacked an Israeli music festival and nearby communities on October 7, 2023.As a result, Israel's defense system, Iron Dome, which is among the most secure in the world, was compromised and Israeli land became vulnerable. This was not seen since 1948, when Israel was established. Israel submitted right away, declaring the geopolitical region to be under "total siege." Palestine believed that the Western countries had given the Jews their lands. The Jews, on the other hand, refuted the claim and linked it to theological epistemology. From the Israel-Palestine War in the 1940s through the Six-Day War, there were many casualties and significant property damage. Due to their divergent viewpoints, the Palestinian groups Hamas and Fatah were unable to agree in 2006 on whether or not to recognize Israel's independence and sovereignty. Fatah is in favor of the agreement, especially at this time when a significant number of Palestinians are refugees in Gaza and adjacent countries. Hamas, which is allegedly backed by Iran and a number of Arab nations, is supposedly motivated by a strong desire to wrest territory from the Israelis. This article looked at the history of the dispute, current issues, and potential outcomes. KEYWORDS: hostages, war, independence, siege, properties, militants.
