War of Independence (May 1948-July 1949)Edit
As per the IDF history page the events prior to May 1948 should not be considered part of the War of Independence nor be named as such.  Additionally you can use http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=0761807217/theamericanisraeA/ as reference.
Course of the War - 1st phaseEdit
Southern front - NegevEdit
The sentence:"For the first few weeks of the war, Egyptian warplanes were able to bomb Tel Aviv with almost complete impunity, meeting only ground fire. The Egyptians also attacked rural settlements and airfields, though few casualties were caused. Two Royal Egyptian Air Force (REAF) Spitfires bombed Tel Aviv. One of them was shot down by anti-aircraft fire and its pilot taken prisoner. However, the Egyptians continued their bombing raids over the city, killing about 40 people. Most civilian casualties in Tel Aviv occurred on a 18 May raid against the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station.".
Thanks to Pluto's deletion, the reader may be surprised to learn that Tel Aviv arial bombing, belongs to the Negev. The "2 spitfires attack" is missing a date. It does not mentions the Egyption dakotas bombers.
Battles of LatrunEdit
the sentence:"From these positions, the Jordanians were able to cut off supplies to Israeli troops and civilians in Jerusalem"
It is suggested to write that "the Jordanians cut off supplies and water line to Israeli troops and civilians in Jerusalem" (Morris 2008 p. 230-231)
Battle for JerusalemEdit
The sentence: "The Jordanians in Latrun cut off supplies to western Jerusalem.".
Proposed: "The Jordanians in Latrun cut off supplies and the water line to western Jerusalem." The sentence:"The Arab Legion fired 10,000 artillery and mortar shells a day'
10000 a day is probably a huge exaggeration.

Move discussion in progressEdit
There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:1947–1949 Palestine war which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 12:00, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
The discussion taking place on the 1947–1949 Palestine war article talkpage affects the title of the current article. I'm wondering why participation in the discussion has been fairly low. ← ZScarpia 21:20, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
