From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Facts on the ground is a diplomatic term that means the situation in reality as opposed to in the abstract. It can often be heard in discussions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Also known by the Latin phrase 'Ex factis jus oritur', meaning 'the existance of facts creates law'. The rival principle is Ex injuria jus non oritur.
