978280627308644EBookPlurilingua PublishingThe Six-Day War in 1967 was a major crisis in the Arab-Israeli conflict and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and caused outrage across the Arab world. After a tense period in which the Israelis and Egyptians exchanged threats, Israel launched a pre-emptive strike and destroyed the Egyptian air force in a matter of hours. The Israeli forces then continued their advance, and by the end of the conflict Israel had quadrupled the territory it controlled and seized the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. In just 50 minutes, you will learn about the background to the Six-Day War, including the 1948 Palestine War and the Suez Crisis in 1956, and find out about its significant consequences, such as the decline of Pan-Arab secular nationalism and the founding of the Palestinian Liberation Organization.

About the Six-Day War Prior to the outbreak of the Six-Day War in 1967, tensions were running high between Egypt and Israel. The Egyptian President's decision to close the Strait of Tiran prevented the Israelis from accessing the Red Sea and resulted in a series of threats from both sides. In the ensuing conflict, which began with an Israeli offensive, the young nation seized a vast area of territory, and tensions between Israel and Egypt did not really subside until after the Camp David Accords in 1978.
