From the Paper:

"The League of Nations created the Mandate in 1920, after World War I ended, and it was put into effect in 1922. The editors of note, "The Mandate was international recognition for the stated purpose of 'establishing in Palestine a national home for the Jewish people'." Before the Mandate, the Ottoman Empire had ruled over the entire area, but the Empire fell after World War I, and Britain and France, who has colonies in the area, took over areas to govern until they areas could stand on their own. The British Mandate of Palestine was one of these partitions that eventually would lead to self-government."
