In 1993, the Oslo Accords were signed between the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) led by Yasser Arafat and the Israeli government led by Yitzhak Rabin. This agreement established the Palestinian Authority and granted limited self-rule to the Palestinians in certain areas of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The 1995 Interim Agreement, also known as Oslo II, further expanded on the earlier agreement and outlined the process for the gradual transfer of power to the Palestinian Authority. These peace treaties marked significant steps towards resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and achieving peace in the region.
