UNSCOP - The United Nations Special Committee on Palestine - was an international commission of inquiry appointed by the United Nations General Assembly in May 1947 to examine the question of Israel. After all the previous plans were rejected and as the struggle of the settlement continued, the United Kingdom decided to bring the issue of Palestine to the United Nations rally. The UN appointed an 11-member committee from various countries, which came to Israel, and met with Jewish and Arab behavior, as well as collected numerous testimonies about what was happening in the country from various sources. On August 31, 1947, the Commission submitted its plan to the UN, which would end the British mandate and the country would be divided into two states, Jewish and Arab, which would cooperate economically and Jerusalem would become an international region. On November 29, 1947, the United Nations accepting the partition plan and ending the British Mandate on Israel on May 15, 1948. This laid the foundation for the establishment of the State of Israel.
