The United Arab Republic (1958-1961) was a confederation established by uniting Egypt, Syria and the All-Palestine Government into a new state. Theoretically all of the former Mandate of Palestine (|) was included in the republic, but was de facto limited to the Gaza Strip which was held under military occupation by Egypt. Syria withdrew from the confederation in 1961, and while the state continued to exist under the same name it was effectively reduced to Egypt.
