Invasion of Israel[edit]

The opening "The Egyptian regular army invaded Israel on May 15, 1948" would seem to me to be inaccurate.Padres Hana (talk) 14:16, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

cf "the Israelis launched Operation Horev, with the objective of expelling all Egyptian forces from Palestine." Padres Hana (talk) 14:19, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
It might be confusing to some people, so I'm thinking about how to make it more clear. However, there's nothing factually wrong with the two sentences. Israel (at the time) -> The Jewish State portion of the UN resolution; Palestine -> The area of both Jewish and Arab states. —Ynhockey (Talk) 19:25, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
