September 28, 1995

The Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, sometimes referred to as Oslo II, is signed by Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and PLO leader Yasser Arafat in a ceremony at the White House. The agreement established the Palestinian Authority as an elected, self-governing body to oversee Palestinian interests in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Its fundamental principle is that neither side should take a unilateral action that would change the states of the Gaza Strip or West Bank. Rabin would be assassinated a little more than a month after the agreement.
