Palestine seeks the recognition of its independent state on the territories of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip — lands occupied by Israel since 1967 Six-Day War. The State of Palestine is currently recognized by 136 of the 193 United Nations member-states, including Russia.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict escalated in July 2014 after Israel launched a military operation against Hamas forces in Gaza, killing thousands of civilians in the process. On August 26, Israel and Palestinian armed groups agreed on a ceasefire following 50 days of military operations.
