The Allon Plan ( ) was a proposal to end the Israelimarker occupation of the West Bankmarker with a negotiated partition of its territories between Israelmarker and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordanmarker. It is named after its chief proponent, Yigal Allon, who proposed it shortly after the June 1967 Six-Day war.

The broad aim of the plan was to create a security border running up from the Jordan Valley to the eastern slopes of the West Bank hill ridge, retain sovereignty of that area, avoid Israeli settlement of heavily populated areas in the West Bankmarker, and to offer those areas to Jordan in bilateral negotiations to achieve diplomatic rapprochement.

This plan was not implemented strictly as subsequent governments of Israel created settlements outside of the Jordan rift. Shafir and Peled assert that this followed a change in the "settlement" paradigm, "[s]ince the possibility of peacefully closing the frontier detached the means of the military frontier from the goal of security, continued settlements became an end in itself, searching for a new justification."

Allon Plan for a Druze state in the Golan/Quneitra

Yigal Allon proposed as part of the Allon Plan that a Druze state (Jabal Druzemarker) be established in Syria's Quneitra Governoratemarker, including the Israeli-held Golan Heightsmarker.[233589] Allon died in 1980, and the following year the Israeli government passed the Golan Heights Law, effectively annexing most of the governorate.
