Jerusalem Under British Rule

The British army captured Jerusalem in December 1917, and even though the official League of Nations mandate wasn’t granted until June 1922, British control of Jerusalem and Palestine began immediately. This period of time from 1918 until 1948 was marked by increased Jewish immigration from Europe and rising tensions between the Jewish and Arab populations. On May 14, 1948, the British Mandate came to an end and the State of Israel was established.
