Israel Thursday released thousands of previously classified official documents charting political decisions during the 1967 Six-Day War when it occupied the West Bank and east Jerusalem.Made public by the Israel State Archives ahead of the 50th anniversary of the June 5-10 conflict, the 150,000 pages contain minutes of the wartime security Cabinet and transcripts of other ministerial meetings, a government statement said.Fifty years later the West Bank remains occupied and the Gaza Strip is under a tight Israeli blockade.On June 15, 1967, five days after the end of the war, several ministers of the security Cabinet discussed various options for the newly occupied territories, with then Foreign Minister Abba Eban describing continued Israeli rule as a potential "powder keg".
