The Palestine Cup of Nations (Arabic: كأس فلسطين للأمم), is a football competition which was held between Arab countries. The tournament apparently acted as replacement for the Arab Nations Cup during the long interruption between 1966 and 1985 and did not account as the Arab Cup, it held on three occasions in Arab countries in the 1970s. The first edition was held in 1972 in Iraq.
