Map – War of 1967 (1967 – 1973)

TIME PERIOD: 1967 – 1973

“In June 1967, Israel launched a preemptive strike against Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, after [Egyptian President] Nasser had declared his intention to annihilate the Jewish state and forged military alliances with Syria and Jordan for that purpose, building up troop concentrations along his border with Israel and blockading shipping to the Israeli port of Eilat. The six-day war that followed Israel’s surprise attack ended with the Israeli army occupying Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Syria’s Golan Heights, and Jordan’s West Bank.”

Thomas L. Friedman, From Beirut to Jerusalem, p. 15-16, Anchor Books Edition, 1995
