The project is an effort to study the challenges of United Nations Peacekeeping Operations in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the course of this study, secondary data were solely relied upon and critically analysed. The study showed clear evidence that history and religion contributed to the conflict. The study also revealed that the efforts of United Nations through its peacekeeping operations failed to end the conflict. The study further showed that United Nations Security Council resolutions to settle the conflict could not achieve its objectives because of some challenges like national interests of world powers and Arab nations, limited resources, unskilled/insufficient personnel, structural constraints, corruption, poor planning and managing the cognitive disconnect between Israel and Palestine. However, the study evidenced that United Nations interventions helped to ensure that the conflict did not escalate beyond control. Some necessary recommendations have been made following these findings and it is believed that this will go a long way towards helping United Nations to resolve the conflict, if adhered to.
