The Six-Day War was a short Arab–Israeli conflict, lasted 6 days, where Israelcube conquered new lands, which is Sinai.

Background

Wars before the Six-Day-War

Ever since Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's victory in 1948 and 1956, the Arab League-icon.png Arab coalition led by Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball, Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball, and Jordan-icon (1967).png Jordanball was eager to change the situation by defeating Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube. Both sides understood the conflict was far from over and were preparing for the next stage of confrontation. International interference and inability of the sides to find a settlement made one of the most iconic conflicts of the modern era - the Six-Day War inevitable. 

Tensions Arise

On May 13, 1967 Soviet-icon.png USSRball falsely informed Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball about concentration of 11-13 brigades of the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israeli Defence Forcescube with the intent to strike Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball. In response, Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball started concentrating forces along the border with Israel-icon.png Israelcube in Sinai and on May 16 demanded UN-icon.png UNball peacekeeping forces to leave the peninsula. At the same time, Israel-icon.png Israelcube refused the request of UN-icon.png UNball on deployment of the UNEF on their side of the border either.

Preparation for War

In the next few days Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball, Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball, Jordan-icon (1967).png Jordanball, and Republic of Sudan-icon (1956-69).png Sudanball started mobilization of their forces, Iraq-icon.png Iraqi Republicball (1958–68) sent expeditionary forces to Jordan-icon (1967).png, and Saudi Arabia-icon.png expressed its willingness to participate in military actions. But the turning point, which made the full scale confrontation inevitable was the decision of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball to block Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's ships from entering the Straits of Tiran from May 22-23 as it did before the Suez Crisis. On June 1, Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube established a "National Unity Government", which on June 4 decided to go to war. 

War & Fronts

Advantages of the Arabs

The Arab League-icon.png Arab Coalition of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball, Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball, and Jordan-icon (1967).png Jordanball had an advantage over Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube in deployed troops with 240 thousand against 100 thousand, in tanks with 2,504 against 800, and with aircrafts with 957 against 300.

Operation Focus & Air War

Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube planned to strike on June 5 with the Operation Focus, which aimed to destroy Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's air force. Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's media published false reports claiming Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's soldiers are on vacation, while their pilots were carrying out training sorties as usual. Their intelligence helped make these trainings as realistic as possible. They also damaged the tracking antenna of Murica-icon.png USAball's embassy to prevent Murica-icon.png USAball finding out about the operation before the strike took place. Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's pilots were informed about the start of the operation only 5 hours in. At the same time, Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's air defence was effectively off on June 5. Nearly 200 Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's aircrafts attacked 14 Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's airfields and caught them absolutely off guard. 338 Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's aircrafts were destroyed. 100 pilots were killed within 3 hours. The Jordan-icon (1967).png Jordanball's and Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball's airforce attacked Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube in retaliation at 11 AM on June 5th. The response of Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's airforce was to attack their airfields which led to the destruction of all 28 Jordan-icon (1967).png Jordanball's and 53 Syria-icon (1967).png Syriaball's and 10 Iraq-icon.png Iraqi Republicball (1958–68)'s planes. Operation Focus was a decisive success: Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube lost only 19 planes in this Operation and guaranteed its total air dominance for the rest of the war. Meanwhile in Lebanon-icon.png Lebanonball, the country was minorly attacked, leaving 1 plane gone, although it didn't join the war, there was still some minor involvement.

Ground War

The ground war was taking place at three fronts: the Sinai front, the Jordanian front, and the Syrian front. 

Sinai Front

Numbers, Gaza Attack, & Arish Advance

On the Sinai front, Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's forces consisted of seven divisions: four armored, two infantry, and one mechanized infantry. Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball had 100,000 troops and 900-950 tanks in the Sinai, so Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube concentrated three divisions consisting of six armored, one infantry, and one mechanized infantry and three paratrooper brigades for a total of 70,000 men and 700 tanks along this front. Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's plan was to catch Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball off-guard by attacking simultaneously with air strikes, and attacking through the Northern and Central routes in the Sinai Peninsula instead of the Central and Southern Routes used during the Sinai War. On the 5th of June, at 7:50 a.m., the northernmost Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's division, consisting of three brigades and commanded by Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Major General Israel Tai started its advance towards Egypt-icon (1954).png Arishball through Egypt-icon (1954).png Gazaball with an aim to encircle Egypt-icon (1954).png Khan Yunisball, while the paratroopers were ordered to take Egypt-icon (1954).png Rafahball. Initally, Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball offered little resistance, since their intelligence concluded that, this was a diversion rather than a main attack. However, soon resistance against the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png 60th armoured brigade ramped up. This did not stop the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israeli forces from reaching Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Khan Yunisball Railway Junction in 4 Hours. Afterwards the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF advanced on Egypt-icon (1954).png Sheikh Zuweidball and defeated fierce Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball resistance thanks to air domination. The road on Egypt-icon (1954).png Arishball was open and by 8 AM on the 6th of July, elements of the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png 79th Armored Battalion and the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png 7th Brigade entered the "suspiciously quiet city" aka the outskirts of Egypt-icon (1954).png Arishball. Suddenly Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptballs started firing from the balconies, windows and there was a heavy battle going on for control of the city and the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF was only able to take full control of the city after reinforcements were sent. The northernmost division then spilt into two parts. One of them continued the advance on the Suez Canal, while the second group turned south and captured Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Bir Lahfanball and Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Jabal Libniball.

Continued Sinai Attack; Battle of Abu-Agelia and Egyptian Retreat

Further south on the 6th of June, the 14 thousand men 150 tank strong Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israeli 38th Armored Division under Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Major-General Ariel Sharon was confronted by the Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptian 2nd Infantry Division under Egypt-icon (1954).png Major-General Sa'adi Nagib, consisting of 16,000 troops and 90 tanks. Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube successfully advanced towards Egypt-icon (1954).png Abu Ageilaball. The Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png paratroopers landed behind Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's positions and sew enough confusion to weaken the artillery of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's defence, which opened the way of the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF to capture Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Um Katefball. It was followed by a fierce close tank battle, which ended up in Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's victory and the capture of Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Abu Ageilaball with 40 of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's and 19 of Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's tanks destroyed. Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's forces in Sinai were still largely intact, but the field marshal Egypt-icon (1954).png Abdel Hakim Amer panicked and ordered retreat of all units from Sinai after hearing the fall of Egypt-icon (1954).png Abu Ageilaball. Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png This order did not elaborate on the sequence and manner of the retreat, which only decreased the defensive capabilities of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's troops. During the following days the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF continued its advance westward and inflicted heavy losses on Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball. Despite episodic heavy resistance by Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball as in Bin Gafgafaball, the napalm bombing by the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png Israelcube's aviation and uncontrolled retreat weakened the morale of Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's troops. Instead of catching and retreating Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball, the Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF decided to capture 3 passes from Sinai to Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's mainland and face  Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's troops there. Although Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png IDF was not able to stop all Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's troops from crossing, these passes became a killing ground for Egypt-icon (1954).png Egyptball's troops with 10,000 being killed in one day alone. The capture of Sinai was completed by the fall of Egypt-icon (1954).png Sharm El-Sheikball Israel-icon (1966 soldier).png on June 7th and Egypt-icon (1954).png Ras Sudarball on June 8th. On June 9th, UN-icon.png UNball's security council achieved armistice between sides. As such, the war was a decisive victory for Israelcube, they achieved total air domination and also caught Egyptball by surprise.
