Put in simple terms Mikeyy, just for you.

The partition plan giving the land west of the Jordan river was given to the arabs - they refused it and attacked the new state of Israel in 1948 and Jordan illegally annexed that land known as the West Bank.

19 years later in 1967 after the arabs from countries surrounding Israel attacked Israel, Israel retook the land from Jordan.
