With Saint Kitts and Navies having recognized the state of Palestine in 2019, the number of countries that recognize it as a country is now up to 138, which is about 71.5% of the total number of members of the United Nations. By far Palestine’s largest and strongest ally is Iran. The unity of these two nations on the political front can be traced back to 1979, after Iran withdrew support from Israel and even turned it into a Palestinian one. India is also a strong ally of the state and has continued being so since 1988.

In fact India was the first non-Arab country to recognize the PLO’s (Palestinian Liberation Organization) authority as “the sole legitimate representative of the Palestinian people” and Narendra Modi was the first Indian Prime Minister to have visited the state in 2018.

The United States of America has been a central player for long, keeping a neutral stand on the Israel-Palestine conflict while always focusing on the agenda of “just trying to de-escalate tensions between the two states”, without taking any proper stance.

As of September 2015, a total of 115 states are known to have diplomatic (bi-lateral) relations with Palestine with some of them being- Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Canada, Brunei, Australia, Croatia, India and France. But although these countries have diplomatic ties, not all of them are vocal allies of either Palestine and or the PLO. The PLO was granted full membership of the Arab league in 1976 which is an ally of sorts with the head of the Arab league condemning the recent deadly Israeli air-strikes on the Gaza strip as “miserable show of force at the expense of children’s blood”. 

With the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza strip there has been a lot of political turmoil and the world is still witnessing a large diplomatic bottleneck of sorts concerning the conflict between these two states.
