WHERE ARE ISRAELS LEGAL BORDER? In 1947 the UN proposed a partition plan that gave the jewish state 55% of Palestine minus Jaffa which was allocated to the rejected arab state.

In 1967 Israel went to war again this time capturing land from Egypt, Syrian and Jordan which was the remaining 22% of British mandate Palestine and once again these were ceasefire lines and neither Israel or the UN declared them to be final border. Israel has never said what its border is and the closest its ever come to an official border was the 1947 partition plan. WHERE ARE THE BORDERS?
