Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has travelled to the UK to mark the centenary of the Balfour declaration with his British counterpart, Theresa May.

The declaration – signed 100 years ago and endorsed by Britain – paved the way for the establishment of a Jewish “national home” in Palestine.

However, for Palestinians, the declaration would lead to the eventual loss of their land, subsequent displacement, and later occupation.
