Is Palestine a country?

Palestine flag

1. IS IT A COUNTRY?

No. Palestine isn’t a country (yet) cause:

  1. It doesn’t have territorial sovereignty.
  2. It’s not officially recognized in the international order = It’s not an United Nations member (although its recognition has increased over the years and it has become a UN observer state, there are still more than 50 countries—mostly Westerns—that do not recognize its sovereignty).
