Camp David where Israel offers to create a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza. Arafat rejects the offer

July: President Bill Clinton invites the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to a summit at Camp David in the USA for ‘Final Status’ talks under the troubled ‘Oslo Accords’. Israeli PM Ehud Barak offers to recognise a Palestinian State in 97% of the territory Arafat is demanding, which embraces most of the Old City of Jerusalem including control over the Temple Mount – all in exchange for an ‘end to hostilities’. Arafat rejects the offer and two months later launches the second intifada against Israel.
