that way since at least 1945. When the war is over, Sovereign territory is withdrawn from. (Egypt Jordan). If it's non-state territory, it can be occupied and/or bilaterally annexed. "Cj if one can`t annex land won in war..How can the city have been divided through a war waged by Arabs?" War is waged by the party starting the war. If it's a preemptive war, the preemptor wages it.

Sometimes they follow acknowledged and recognized boundaries. Sometimes they don't.
