Shvitat Neshek - שְׁבִיתַת נֶשֶׁק

Pronunciation: Shvi·tat ne·shek

Literal translation: Armistice, a cease-fire



Israel has been through many wars, so as a result, it has signed a shvitat neshek with its enemies many a time.


After the War of Independence in 1949, Iraq refused to sign a shvitat neshek with Israel, so the war between the two ended, but both sides are still officially in a state of war with each other.
