After decades of bloody animosity, representatives of Israel and Palestine
meet on the South Lawn of the
White House and sign a framework for
peace. The “Declaration of Principles” was the first agreement between
the Israelis and Palestinians towards ending their conflict and sharing
the holy land between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea that
they both claim as their homeland.

Israel and Palestine signed their first major agreement. Palestine was
granted limited self-government in the Gaza Strip and in Jericho.

On this  day in 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Following wide initial interest in the crashed "flying disc", the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. Interest subsequently waned until the late 1970s, when Ufologists began
promoting a variety of increasingly elaborate
conspiracy theories, claiming
that one or more alien spacecraft had crash-landed and that the
extraterrestrial occupants had been recovered by the military, which then engaged in a cover-
up
.

In the 1990s, the US military published two reports disclosing the true nature
of the crashed object: a nuclear test surveillance balloon from
Project Mogul.
