The Haganah always had a numeric superiority over the Arab expeditionary forces, and the disparity grew wider the longer the conflict went on. It also had access to military supplied that were denied to the Arabs, to the extent that near the end of the war the various Arab forces refused to support each other because each was running out of ammo. s: "Guess who came to Israel`s help? Hashem of course. Israel won." Israel won because its army was bigger, its army was better equipped, its army was better supplied, and its army operated under a unified command with a unified national goal.
