, a line that demarcated boundaries between Jordan, Israel
, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. Since the 1967 War
, the Green Line has denoted, according to most international opinion and United Nations resolutions, the boundary between territory recognized as part of the legitimate, sovereign State of Israel and the Occupied Palestinian
Territories. For a map that marks the Green Line, see B'Tselem's June 2011 map
