#onthisday, 1967, the UN Security Council unanimously votes for Resolution 242, becoming the first UN-based resolution widely accepted by both sides (Israel & Arab bloc) - in the future, this resolution would act as a precedent for peace deals such as the one with Egypt - essentially creating the "Land for Peace" initiative of the late 70's.

.

Historically it was also the first resolution to recognize the refugee crisis created within the Mizrachi and MENA Jewish community since the creation of the State of Israel in 1948.
