Was Israel ruled by the British?
The British controlled Palestine until Israel, in the years following the end of World War II, became an independent state in 1947.
Why did the British give up Israel?
The award of the mandate also endorsed the 1917 Balfour Declaration, in which Britain expressed support for “a national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine. In 1948, exhausted by World War Two and the strain of holding warring Jewish and Arab forces apart, the British withdrew.
