Isreal is a country with a rich culture and history. They have been around since biblical times,and one fact to note throughout their history is that they always come out on top in every situation that befall them. Before the official creation of the state in May 14 1948 the region was under the rule of the British and called Palestine,in Arab it was called falastin and in Hebrew it was called Palestina and since then have never lost a single battle
Isreal is surrounded by many enemy countries, in fact majority of Arab countries hate Isreal,they hate Israel because they feel they occupy too much land, such countries include Algeria,Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh,Brunei,Iran,Iraq,Kuwait,Lebanon,Sudan,Syria, Pakistan,
Malaysia,Libya, United Arab Emirates and Yemen
In the midst of so many enemies Israeli forces knew it had to have a very strong military.
Isreal has proven it self to be one of the most powerful counties with best military in the world, Isreal is the king of middle East and dominates in every aspect of military compared to other Muslims countries. They also have a far greater air superiority because of huge squadron of F-35's in thier arsenal, Isreal has a very strong Allie in the case of US and also a special defense system called the Dome which can intercept any missile launched towards the country with a 98℅ accuracy, every citizen in isreal is combat trained and must serve in the military for at least 2 years after completion of high school. So they have a vast wealth of trained personnel,virtually everyone of them can fight
How Isreal Conquered Three Counties In Six days
This event is known as the six days war and it took place between June 5-10 1967. it's was quite a bloody battle and the countries involved includes Isreal,Jordan,Egypt and Syria
Tension was rising and was at its height in 1966, the Israeli forces and it's neighbors had been in quite diplomatic battles and skirmishes
Following the creation of Isreal in 1948,Arab countries were not happy and the Arab coalition launched a failed invasion of the nascent Jewish state , this signifies the start of the Arab-Isreal conflicts which will span decade
Another conflicts erupted in 1956 when a then president of Egypt Gamal Abdel Nasser nationalization of the Zeus canal,Isreal,UK and France launched a controversial attack on Egypt.
Other similar battles continued to occur and isreal kept winning,the Arabian leaders were furious because of their great military loses and increasing number of Palestinian refugees
The six day war started as a result of border dispute. In April 1967 the Syrian forces started bombarding isreal with artilleries this forced isreal to retaliate with their own air force and artilleries, Six Syrians fighters were destroyed during this conflicts. In the heat of this the Soviet Union provide Egypt with an information that isreal is moving majority of its troop to the north defend and Syrian forces wanted to make a full scale invasion,this information was however inaccurate and proved to be deadly. In the Egyptian show of support for its Ally,then president of Egypt Gamal Abdel Nasser ordered the movement of troops to the Sinai peninsula and defeated a United Nation peace keeping force with some other isreal military
On May 22 he banned Isreal shipping routes connecting the red Sea and Gulf of Aquba. He also signed a defense pact with the then king of Jordan king Hussein. In response to this the Israeli upper military voted to counter the Arab build up by launching a preemptive strike
On June 5 1967, the Isreal Defense forces launched a mission code named "Operation focus" which is a coordinated air attack on Egypt. on that morning over 200 isreal aircraft moved to the west over the Mediterranean sea and coverage on the North of Egypt catching Egypt by surprise, The isreal air force decimated majority of the Egyptian aircrafts which were still sitting in the air field, the Egyptians were helpless as they only looked on as they lose 90 percent of thier planes that morning. Following that the Israeli Air force extended thier coverage and also destroyed air forces of syria,iraq and Jordan.
By the end of that IAF(Isreali Air Force) has established air superiority over the whole middle East
Following thier air conquest the ground war began,the isreal tanks in conjunction with air strikes and various infantries stormed the Sinai peninsula. The Egyptians resisted well but later fell into disarray which forced Marshal Abdel Hakim to issue out a general retreat,the Isreali forces pursued the retreating units and inflicted severe casualties
The second phase of the six day war began when Jordan heard of seemingly Egyptian victory, they started firing artillery shells at Isreali positions in Jerusalem. Isreal counter strikes furiously and seize the old city of Jerusalem and the West Bank
On June 7th Isreal celebrate the capture of the old city and prayed at the western wall
The final phase of the battle took place along the northeastern border with Syria
On the 9th of June the IAF carried out an intense ariel bombardment of fortified region of Syria called the Golan heights, heavily armoured tanks and troops followed the air raid and Golan was captured the next day
On the June 10,1967 the united Nations brokered a ceasefire which officially brought the 6 days war to an end. Throughout all these battles the Israeli lost just 800 troops while the Arab coalition lost over 20,000 troops. I'll say it's a massive Victory for Isreal.
Israel has never lost a single battle and won't ever lose because of thier great military capability, they also have a strong Allie with the US, so any war involving Isreal will drag US and Ultimately NATO and it's allies.
