The area of today’s Syria was administered by France on behalf of the League of Nations from 1920. From the 1920s onwards, nationalist Arabs rose up against European rule. In 1946 Syria became an independent state.
Syria formed the United Arab Republic with Egypt in 1958–61. On the side of Egypt, Syria took part in wars against Israel in 1948, 1967 and 1973 (Middle East conflict).
