The Conflict between Egypt and Israel has been brewing long before the events of June 1967. This time was a turning point in Israel's history. The six-day war lasted from 5 to 10 June and brought unexpected results for both parties.

Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser was preparing for military action in advance. On may 22 he issued a decree to close all sea lanes for Israeli courts, thereby violating not an international agreement. In response to such actions under international law Israel could take military action, but did not. Such silence was interpreted by Egypt as a sign of weakness and strengthened his belief in their own superiority. The ensuing six day war was inevitable.

The statements of President Gamal Nasser Abdeslem sounded threatening the Israelites and promises to erase their state off the map. The threat was reinforced by the signing of the Alliance with the States bordering Israel. In Jordan the army was formed.

The Atmosphere was tense and sowed panic among the civilian population of Israel. The government represented by Prime Minister Levi Eshkol could not reassure and inspire people. All men from 18 years to 55 was called up for military service. The war in Israel is promised to be short.

The Government of Israel did not wait for the direct military action by the Arabs, and first struck a blow at the enemy. 5 June 1967 Israeli air force destroyed the entire combat aircraft of Egypt and caused serious damage to Syrian aircraft. At the request of the Prime Minister of Israel to the UN addressed to the king of Jordan not to enter the war and received a waiver.

Has Begun full-scale military action. The loss of the air force Nasser dealt a big blow to the ego. Israeli intelligence services managed to record a conversation between Nasser and king Hussein in which they discussed what to tell the public that the military actions together with Israeli aircraft involved American and British. After this announcement, all the Arab countries broke off diplomatic relations with the United States. A week later, the king Hussein apologized for lying. This is probably due to the fact that a recorded conversation was made public.
