Military Review

Six Day War. Part of 3. Unbiased and impartial

95

The Arab-Israeli conflict, which lasted two thirds of a century, is still a largely unknown war. In Soviet times, reliable information about the course of hostilities was virtually inaccessible: the official press preferred to keep silent about the reasons for the defeats of its Arab allies, limiting themselves to ritual curses against the "Israeli military". After the collapse of the USSR, several informative books on small stories the Arab-Israeli wars, the Internet is full of journalistic tales, articles, sinful factual errors, superficial knowledge of the subject, and sometimes deliberate speculations, distortions of historical reality, etc.


The publication of the first two parts of the series on the Six-Day War revealed a certain interest among the readers of the Military Review. Along with positive feedback, readers made a number of comments:

"In general, of course, it is interesting, but not impartial, of course, by no means."
“An interesting article, of course, the sources to which the author refers are very specific, so the material was very tendentious.”
“I have read so many times, including here, articles about the victorious march of the Israeli army, that I want a look from the other side or a neutral assessment of events. For example, estimates of Soviet military historians. "


Readers should be listened to, constructive criticism to accept and draw appropriate conclusions.

And this part of the series will be devoted mainly to the vision of the events taking place by the other side. Here is the view of Soviet historians and the opinion of the Arabs - the direct participants in the events. At the same time, as they say, you cannot throw words out of a song: a text without censorship. In it there is a sharpness of statements and tough anti-Israeli rhetoric. I allow myself some explanations or comments on the course of the story. (They are enclosed in brackets and in italics.) Well, how much all this is unbiased and impartial, to judge you, dear readers.

Here's how to describe what is happening. Soviet historians.

After triple aggression (meaning "Suez Campaign") The Middle East conflict has entered a new phase, characterized by the fact that the forces of imperialism have even more actively begun to use the aggressiveness and expansionism of the Israeli ruling elite in the struggle against the Arab national liberation movement. The Zionist ideology prevailing in Israel served as the basis for the official doctrine of territorial expansion, the seizure of the lands of neighboring Arab states and the expulsion of the indigenous population from them.

The military-economic plans of Israel completely and completely met the interests of the Western powers. The leaders of Israel, encouraged by them, accelerated the militarization of the country. The appropriation for military spending in 1966–67 reached 30% of the budget. By 1967, the Israeli armed forces received a large amount of modern weapons from Western countries, including hundreds tanks, aircraft and several dozen auxiliary ships, large-caliber artillery, anti-aircraft missiles and modern electronic equipment.

The General Staff has developed a plan of war against the Arab countries, which was based on the principle of "lightning war." Its essence was a sudden raid aviation to the airfields of the Arab countries, the destruction of aircraft and gaining air supremacy, decisive actions of tank and mechanized formations with the active support of aviation to defeat the ground forces of the Arab countries.

The first strike was planned to inflict on Egypt. The plan envisaged the forces of infantry formations to break through the defenses of the Egyptian troops, by introducing tank groups to develop an offensive against the Suez Canal, to cut off Egyptian troops on the Sinai Peninsula, to slash and destroy them in parts. The landing of an airborne assault in the region of Sharm el-Sheikh to seize the seaport, to ensure the navigation of Israel around the Gulf of Aqaba Subsequently, defeat the Jordanian troops west of the Jordan River and seize Jerusalem. In conclusion, launch an offensive against Syria to capture the Golan Heights and advance towards Damascus.

Israeli aviation produced detailed aerial photographs of military facilities in Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Detailed information was collected on the armed forces of the Arab states (their size, armament, deployment), and targets were set for aviation. By the beginning of the war, the Israeli Air Force had detailed maps with objects on which it was necessary to strike.

The ruling circles of the United States and England not only supported the militaristic plans of Israel, but also prepared to render him military assistance. Since the end of May 1967 the ships of the 6th American fleet with marines in readiness cruised in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. In early June, England sent two aircraft carriers and a compound of bombers to the Middle East.

Arab governments regarded Israeli actions as preparations for a new territorial expansion and activated the search for countermeasures. Initiated by Nasser in January 1964(!) This year, the first pan-Arab meeting of heads of state was held in Cairo, at which the issue of pooling efforts to counter Israel’s threat was discussed. The meeting also considered issues of support that should have been given to the Palestinian national liberation movement. During this period, Fatah organizations and some other Palestinian groups emerged. At the end of May 1964, the first Palestinian National Congress was held in East Jerusalem, at which the creation of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was announced. Congress adopted the National Charter and approved the Charter of the PLO. From January 1965, Fatah began to conduct separate partisan actions on Israeli territory. Israel took advantage of these actions as a pretext for new attacks on Arab countries, hoping to force them to take tough measures against the Palestinian movement. In May 1965, the Israeli army attacked a number of settlements in the West Bank.

In the spring of 1967, Israeli forces launched a series of attacks on Syrian border settlements, while Israeli aviation attacked important targets on the Syrian front. These provocative actions were aimed at intimidating the Arab countries and forcing them to refuse to coordinate efforts in the struggle against imperialism and Zionism, as well as to undermine the progressive regime in Syria.

In an effort to prevent further deterioration of the situation, the Soviet Union warned Israel in April 1967 of heavy responsibility for its adventurous policies and urged it to show restraint and prudence. However, after that, the Israeli government did not change its course.

Given the current situation, the USSR at the end of May again tried to prevent a critical development of events. In a statement on the situation in the Middle East on 23 in May 1967, the Soviet government warned Israel that if it unleashed aggression, it would have to meet not only with the combined strength of the Arab countries, but also with decisive opposition from aggression by the Soviet Union, all peace-loving states.

Due to the fact that the Israeli government did not heed the warnings of the USSR and continued to prepare for the attack on Syria, Egypt was forced on 22 on May 1967 to ban the passage of the Israeli ships through the Tirana strait and the Gulf of Aqaba as well as vessels of other countries transporting strategic cargoes for Israel . At the same time, Egypt demanded the withdrawal of UN troops and transferred its own forces to the Sinai Peninsula to organize resistance to the aggressor ...

After the 1956 aggression of the year, Egypt significantly strengthened its defenses. With the help of the USSR and other socialist countries, its armed forces were re-equipped with new military equipment, ceasing purchases weapons at the imperialist monopolies.

Six Day War. Part of 3. Unbiased and impartial


In order to coordinate the military actions of the Arab states in the struggle against the aggressor, agreements were signed on joint defense with Syria (1966) and Jordan (1967).



In the second half of May, 1967, in the face of the increasing Israeli military provocations, Egypt began to strengthen its forces in the Sinai Peninsula, bringing their numbers to the beginning of the war to 100 thousand men (6 – 7 divisions) and to 1 thousand tanks. Egyptian troops were prepared for decisive offensive action, in the event that Israel embarked on aggression against Syria. From 29.05.1967, the Egyptian troops began to carry out the defensive plan "Winner".

5 June 1967 of the year, in 8: 45 Cairo time, the Israeli Air Force launched a surprise attack on 16 Egyptian airfields. To reach the target, Israeli aviation made a deep roundabout maneuver, going to the airfields of the Egyptian air forces from the sea. When the first wave hit the targets, the second wave of Israeli aviation was already in the air, and the third one was taking off from its bases. The break between the waves was 10 minutes. The air raid was provided by the suppression of radar stations, aviation guidance networks, air defense systems, and Egyptian armed forces ground control networks. As a result of the Israeli Air Force strike, 85% of Egyptian aircraft were destroyed.



At noon on the same day, Israeli aircraft attacked Syrian airfields and the Iraqi airfield H-3, destroying a significant number of aircraft on the ground.

In total, during the war, Israeli fighters and fighter-bombers made 3279 sorties attacking 28 Arab airfields, of which 97% of airfields were attacked on the first day of the war. After winning air supremacy in the first hours, the Israeli air force switched to supporting the ground forces.

The main blow Israeli troops inflicted on the coastal direction. On the first day, in most areas, the first-echelon troops of the Egyptian army successfully repulsed the Israeli offensive. By the end of the day, the Israelis managed to break through the defenses of the Egyptian troops on the directions of the main attacks, and by tank groups to advance a considerable distance into the depths of the Sinai Peninsula, intercept communications and disrupt the control of the Egyptian troops. The Primorsk group of Israeli troops, which included up to 300 tanks, blocked the Egyptian 7 division, which defended Rafah, by the end of 5 June reached the approaches to the railway hub and the main supply base of Egyptian troops. The Egyptian command was forced to give the order to the troops of the first echelon on the night of June 6 to withdraw to the defensive line of Jabal, Ljabni-Tamad. On the morning of June 6, Israeli forces occupied El-Arish and in the main areas, with the support of aviation, rapidly advanced to the second lane. In 12.00 6 June, Marshal Abd El-Hakim Amar ordered the troops defending in the El-Arish area to withdraw to the west bank of the Suez Canal, having only light weapons with them.

Abd El Hakim Amar


The same order was given to the divisions in Sinai. Front and army headquarters also began to retreat.

The chief of staff of the Egyptian army, Colonel-General Muhammad Fawzi wrote about this:
“Due to the lack of a written order to withdraw, there was confusion. Troops swept panic. Unorganized waste demoralized 100-thousandth army. Retreating, the soldiers went to their homes. Defeatist sentiments prevailed throughout the retreating Egyptian army ... None of the retreating groups of soldiers could be seen officers ... "

Muhammad Fawzi


In the evening of June 7, Israeli troops reached the Suez Canal.

The Security Council twice decided on a cease-fire. However, Israel, blatantly flouting them, not only did not stop military operations against Arab countries, but also continued to seize new territories.

Israeli forces began fighting against Jordan in 13: 00 on June 5 after a powerful air strike. The offensive began on two fronts: the Jerusalem and Janeane-Nablus. In the direction of Jerusalem, with the support of aviation, three infantry, airborne and tank brigades launched an offensive. K 24: 00 Jerusalem was surrounded. The headquarters of the Jordanian army in the West Bank was subjected to an air strike. Fighting for the neighborhoods of the city continued at night. On the morning of June 6, the Israelis seized the Beit Aksar-An Nabi mountain range, Samovale, El Latrun, repulsing the attacks of Jordanian reserves advancing from Ariha. By June 7, in the southern sector, Israeli troops completely captured Jerusalem, Al-Khalil and developed the offensive to crossings over the Jordan River.

In the northern sector, Israeli forces launched an offensive on 12: 00 on June 5 after heavy aviation and artillery preparation. By the morning of June 6, two Israeli brigades surrounded the city of Jenin. An attempt by the 40 Tank Brigade of Jordan to break through to the city was not successful. The brigade was subjected to a powerful air strike and suffered heavy losses.

7 June Israeli units approached the city of Nablus. The local population welcomed the vanguard of the Israeli troops, taking them for Iraqi troops. In 10: 30, when the Israelis entered the city, the local population, realizing their mistake, began to resist the invaders. On the same day, in this direction, Israeli troops reached the Jordan River, seizing a bridge to Damia.

Thus, by June 7, the West Bank was fully occupied by Israeli forces. In 20: 00 7 June, Israel and Jordan agreed to a cease-fire.

12: 00 6 June, King of Jordan Hussein, after analyzing the situation, sent the following telegram to Nasser:
“The situation in the West Bank is on the verge of imminent collapse ... A concentrated offensive is under way in all directions ... Air strikes day and night. The Jordanian, Syrian and Iraqi air forces are practically destroyed. ”

King of Jordan Hussein


After consulting with the Egyptian Lieutenant-General Abd El Munim Riyad, who had arrived to lead the Jordan front, the king asked the Egyptian leadership to report on the three available options to resolve the situation.

1. The political decision on a cease-fire by the efforts of the United States, the USSR and the Security Council.

2. Evacuation of troops at night on the east coast.

3. A delay of one more day will lead to the Jordanian army being completely cut off and destroyed.


Lieutenant General Abd El Munim Riyadh


On 14: 00 6, June, Marshal Abd-El-Hakim Amer answered the following message by telegram:

“To His Majesty King Hussein! We will do everything to stop the fighting. Agree to withdraw the regular army. Try to arm the local population to provide popular resistance. ”


5 June in 13: The Syrian government announced the start of the war. Air Force attacked 00 at Israeli airfields with 22 aircraft (there were no enemy aircraft at the airfields)(!).

In 14: 00, the Israeli Air Force struck back at four Syrian airfields, destroying 75% of aircraft. In the afternoon, the Syrian command attempted to force the Jordan River.



The advancement of troops to the initial areas for the forcing was carried out under the continuous strikes of Israeli aviation and artillery fire. Due to the heavy losses inflicted during the advance, on the afternoon of 6 in June, the Syrian troops abandoned the crossing of the water barrier and began to defend, concentrating their main efforts on the central front.



During 7 and 8 on June, the Israeli Air Force and artillery continued to strike at Syrian troops, and in 12: 30 and 9 on June, infantry and tank brigades launched an offensive. By the end of June 9, in the northern sector, Israeli troops, with the continued support of aviation, broke through the defenses of the Syrian troops and began to develop an offensive on Quneitra. The Syrian troops steadfastly held out against the superior forces of the enemy, inflicting heavy losses on manpower and equipment. In 15.00 10 Jun Kuneitra fell.

In the current critical situation, the Soviet Union, which had repeatedly warned the Israeli government about the disastrous consequences of its adventure, broke off diplomatic relations with Israel and declared its readiness to apply appropriate measures against the aggressor if he continued his aggressive actions. The firm Soviet position was one of the main factors that caused the Israeli government in 16: 30 10 June to cease hostilities.

As a result of the aggression, Israel captured an area of ​​about 70 thousand square meters. km (the Sinai Peninsula, the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, the Golan Heights) and as a first step towards the future annexation of the occupied lands established the system of Israeli occupation on them.

“As a result of the courageous struggle of the Arab people, its support by the Soviet Union, other socialist countries and the world progressive public, imperialism could not solve its main tasks - to overthrow the progressive system in Syria and Egypt. Israel “has not achieved any important political goal. He failed to overthrow the regimes of Cairo and Damascus, ”the American bourgeois newspaper New York Tribune was forced to state.

(Well, it was they who got a little hot. The New York Tribune newspaper ceased to exist a year before the events described, and little Israel could not overthrow such regimes under any victories.)

Now we will listen to the Arab officers.

This is an introduction to a very cool book-textbook “ARAB-ISRAELI WAR. Preparation for the Third Arab-Israeli Campaign ", released by the UAR military-scientific directorate immediately after the defeat in the Six-Day War. There, on two hundred pages, mobilization plans, operational deployment of the opposing sides, strategic operational plans, etc. are discussed in great detail. The advantages and disadvantages of the sides' armed forces are explained, errors are analyzed, etc. If you are interested, I’ll post several pdf files somewhere on the network.



“The 1948-1949 and 1956 Arab-Israeli wars did not complete the incessant struggle of the Arab nation against aggressive imperialist and Zionist attempts to seize their territory and natural resources, extinguish the flame of national liberation struggle and break the bonds of the unity of the Arabs. Therefore, it is not strange that the third round of the Arab-Israeli struggle came in the summer of 1967, but the ease and speed with which imperialism and Zionism were able to achieve new successes is striking, despite the fact that the Arabs had time and opportunities for good preparation for this " round. "

There is no doubt that the 3 th “round” is not the last, since imperialism did not achieve its goals, and the Arabs retained enough strength and will for justice to triumph.

The thing is that the Zionist movement is imperialistic in its ideology, aggressive in its goals, racist in its content and fascist in its methods of action. And Israel is its obedient instrument in Palestine, the springboard of neo-colonialism and imperialism in its struggle to maintain influence in Africa and Asia.

That is why the Supreme OAU of the UAR and gives this analysis of the third "round" of the Arab-Israeli struggle in order to extract the necessary lessons, experience and benefits to better prepare for the upcoming decisive battle.

Lieutenant General Major
Abdel Mokeim Mohammed Riad Head of National University
NGSH AF SAR Mustafa Hassan El Gamal ".


9 June 1967, when the fire from both sides was stopped, ended the 70-year period of hard struggle of the Arabs against imperialism and Zionism. These 70 years can be divided into two periods. The first is from 29 August 1897, when the first Zionist congress was held in Switzerland, and until 29 November, 1947, when the Security Council adopted a resolution on the partition of Palestine. The second period - 20 years of continuous struggle of the Arabs against Israel. During this time, there were three rounds. In the first, in the summer of 1948, most of the countries, both Western and Eastern, were on the side of Israel.

In the second, autumn of 1956, Israel was only a weapon in the hands of two great powers and served to fulfill their imperialistic goals.

Then came the third "round", which is the subject of research in this book. Much of what happened during these 3 “rounds” deserves close attention, careful evaluation and analysis.

As much as the great powers and their minions tried to help Israel in the summer of 1948, by the fact that some of them even recognized its existence as a state even before Israel’s official request for this was sent to them, the whole world, both governments and peoples, condemned the imperialist threefold aggression, in which Israel took part in the summer of the year 1956. Relations in the military field developed in a similar way.

In 1948, the Western countries led by the United States and the socialist led by the USSR helped Israel with weapons, money, equipment, and volunteers.

And in the 1956 year, both the countries of the West and the countries of the socialist camp demanded a decisive cessation of aggression.

As for the third “round” in the summer of 1967, everything turned out differently. Interestingly, how carefully Israel conducted preparations for the war with the Arabs, how scrupulously it followed the fundamentals and principles of military science in each of these 3 “rounds”, how fully it mobilized all its material resources and moral strength and capabilities, so much did the Arabs neglect any preparation ignored the fundamentals and principles of military science, scattered their efforts and suffered unjustified losses.

“How could it happen that, contrary to any logic, 2,5 million Zionists defeat more than 100 million Arabs over and over again?

The victory was won by Israel, whose area is equal to 20 thousand km², while the Arabs had more than 11 million km², the military budget of Israel was 270 million dollars, and the budget of the Arab countries bordering with it was 6 million dollars. Incredibly, it’s a fact that Israel managed to move a well-trained and armed army into battle, mobilizing 830% of its population, while the six neighboring countries mobilized only 10% of its population for a decisive battle. But the constantly existing collusion and mutual support of the imperialist countries made possible the impossible from the impossible, and real from the unthinkable.

While the Arabs were busy with controversy in their midst, Israel made thorough and serious preparations for war. The Zionists paid due attention to the benefits of joint action and were not scrupulous in choosing the means to achieve their goals. Their slogan - all means are good if they lead to the desired result. The Arabs, all the time engaged in resolving the differences between them, in their actions adhered to generally accepted rules and regulations. And why be polite, listen to the voice of conscience and respect the one who does not have conscience, who is an apologist for war, who is mired in blood. "

The Arab warrior must do his utmost to best prepare for the decisive battle that will undoubtedly be. He should be well aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the Israeli army, and know that statements about the invincibility of the Israeli army are just a myth, without foundation. Every warrior, wherever he is, must refer to the military chronicle of these three "rounds" and study it carefully.

These are the very warriors and their brothers, who in 1948 and 1956 showed fearlessness and heroism. The heroes of the 1948 and 1956 events can now ask their brothers: why the Arabs were so weak in the third round, why did they suffer such a crushing and shameful defeat, and what should be done to prepare well for the future battle, the new round?

Conditions on theater before the third Arab-Israeli campaign. In the 1967 year, Israel entered, experiencing serious internal difficulties: unemployment reigned in the country, foreign investment decreased, emigration increased, and the influx of Jews from abroad stopped. All this threatened the existence of Israel as a state and destroyed the myth of its prosperity. In his speech on 19 on April 1967, David Ben-Gurion sounded the alarm, saying that the future of the State of Israel could no longer be considered guaranteed.
(Indeed, at that time things did not go well in Israel, but by that time Ben-Gurion was already 81 for a year and he, practically not a lot, lived as a pensioner in his kibbutz.)
He was echoed by many other government and political figures. They demanded to create conditions for attracting new immigrants to Israel and “resettling them over a wide area” so that over time the Arab population would cease to be predominant. All of this prompted Israel to take urgent and decisive measures to enlist the support of imperialism and Zionism.
With the help of the imperialist forces, a plan was developed, designed not only to solve the problems facing Israel, but also to attract world public opinion to its side. This plan took into account the existence on the territory of Israel of the organization of Palestinian patriots "El Fatah" and its military wing "El Asif", which launched active activities at that time. On the other hand, imperialism sought to end the progressive Arab regimes in the area, and especially in Syria and the UAR. These countries, pursuing a peace-loving foreign policy, interfered with the implementation of the imperialist plans, actively supported the line expressed by the slogan "Arab oil - the Arabs." In addition, both of these countries have a common border with Israel. Major General Rabin, Chief of the General Staff of Israel, said on May 12 of the year 1967:

"We will make a swift raid against Syria, occupy Damascus, overthrow the regime there and go back."

(Well, Rabin was still that swordsman! In the heat of the moment, he didn’t blurt out like that, but I didn’t find such words in any serious source.)

This statement addressed to Damascus should have touched and Cairo. Zionism and imperialism began to seriously plan their aggression against the Arabs at the beginning of 1967, activating the springs of the mechanism of secret maneuvers and open consultations both in the international arena and inside Israel. As a result, in April, Israel attempted aggression against Syria in order to overthrow the existing regime there, which was not crowned with success.
(The second time I have already met this statement, but I did not understand when and in what way the “attempt of aggression” manifested itself.)

At that time, Israel began preparations for wider aggression, accusing Syria of encouraging the actions of the Palestinian patriots and restoring world public opinion against it. Israel launched a wide-ranging psychological campaign against the Arabs on a global scale, demanding that all its ambassadors carry out the necessary work for this in the countries where they are accredited.

All Israeli parties within the country also joined this campaign, leading the people of Israel and world public opinion to the conclusion that future Israeli aggression is a just and inevitable matter.

The Soviet circles commented on all these actions of Israel and its incessant threats to the Arabs:

"The concentration of Israeli troops in the demilitarized zone clearly confirms that Israel, contrary to its interests, is a source of tension in the Middle East."


14 May The Israeli plan faced an obstacle when the UAR announced that it would take all the necessary measures to repel imperialist aggression against Syria.

For the imperialists and Israel, the intervention of the UAR was unexpected, despite the fact that they were aware of the existence of a mutual assistance agreement between Syria and the UAR, signed in November 1966, because they believed that Egypt had too many worries in Yemen and neither the ability to provide Syria with sufficient military assistance. All this led Israel and the imperialists from 14 May to 4 June to seek new methods and develop a new plan, details of which were revealed later.

Soviet historians conclusion:
“Israel’s success in wars is largely determined by the miscalculations of the Arab commands in preparing for a war, some of their carelessness in managing military operations, but not the exclusive features of the Israeli army, as the Zionists in the West often present. The command of the armed forces of the Arab states poorly coordinated the military operations of the fronts, did not carry out the interaction of the types of armed forces and the armed forces. The losses of the Arab armies significantly exceeded the losses of Israel and tended to grow in each new war. ”

(In other words, the Jews won, not because they fought well, but because the Arabs fought poorly.)

Well, dear readers, now you know almost everything about the Six-Day War. In order not to upset the readers who are militant towards Israel, I will not put here the "pro-Israel", "prejudiced" and "biased" version of the description of the military actions of the parties. I will add only a few numbers and strokes that complement the overall picture.

The decision to break off diplomatic relations with Israel in the USSR was taken on 10 June.

USSR Ambassador Dmitry Chuvakhin suddenly asked for an urgent audience with Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Even. In a shaky voice, the Soviet ambassador said:

- In light of the ongoing Israeli aggression against Arab countries, the USSR government decided to sever diplomatic relations with Israel.

Eban, I must give him the honor, replied very discreetly and reasonably:

- There are deep disagreements between our countries, but that is why relations should be strengthened, and not stopped.

“What your Excellency says is rational, but I was not sent here to discuss the rationality of our official statement.” I have arrived to announce the severance of diplomatic relations between our countries.

Saying these words, the Soviet ambassador suddenly burst into tears and ran out of the office. Even just froze - he never expected such a reaction.

After returning to Moscow, Dmitry Stepanovich Chuvakhin, recognized in the hearts of one of the perpetrators of the Arab defeat of the Israeli military, was never appointed to the post of ambassador. The results of the war were a great defeat for Soviet diplomacy, and someone had to be appointed guilty.

He died in 1997 year. My homeland sternly dealt with my diplomat: I did not find a single snapshot of this person on the Russian-language Internet. But in Israel he is remembered - for the hidden sympathy he had for the people of our country ...

But with the United States, Israel acquired some informal alliance that survived not only the hostility of the USSR, but even the USSR itself, which in those years seemed unthinkable. This union is still alive today.

In this war, 766 killed Israeli soldiers (Ben-Gurion had 777 soldiers and 26 civilians) and injured about 2500-3000 people, another 15 people were captured. Arab countries did not disclose their losses, but most historians believe that Egypt lost 15000 killed (Ben-Gurion has 11 500) and 5600 prisoners, Syria - before 500-600 killed and 700 wounded, Jordan, according to the Jordanian Prime Minister, lost 6094 people killed and missing.


Egyptian prisoners soldiers at Sinai


Even by the most careful calculations, the Arab armies lost military equipment worth 1 billion dollars, and almost all of them were Soviet-made. According to various sources, for example, the Arab armies lost some tanks from 500 to 800. The aircraft were destroyed 469 (391 - on the ground, 75 - in aerial combat, 3 - shot down by anti-aircraft gunners), of which 23 Iraqi - a country that does not have a common border with Israel. Figures from researcher to researcher differ slightly, but they do not cause any particular disagreements.

The Israelites gathered on the battlefields some unthinkable number of trophies. Before 80,% of the Arab tanks were in a fully combat-ready state (100 tanks were captured in full serviceability and with unused ammunition and around 200 with minor damage) and served for many years in various forms in the IDF.


Six Day War Trophies: EC-3, T-54, PT-76, T-34-85, ZSU-57-2



Captured from the Arabs captured Soviet armored vehicles at the parade in Jerusalem


I do not venture to judge the world echo, but Soviet propaganda brought some scattered pieces of this whole story to the most unexpected angles of the Soviet language space.

Dayan and Eban became folk characters, helped by their strange sounding names for the Russian ear. This fact was registered by Venichka Yerofeev in his famous book "Moscow-Petushki". (I honestly wanted to quote, but obscene vocabulary is present there. Alas ...)

Reality intertwined with the legend. Apparently, the story of heroism, allegedly manifested by Moshe Dayan during the Great Patriotic War somewhere near Kiev, disappeared from Mikhail Weller’s light hand.



And a year after the events described, Alexander Galich wrote his unforgettable ballad "How Klim Petrovich spoke at a rally in defense of peace."

    1. Comparison of battalions and brigades is not entirely correct. I strongly suspect that the Arab and Israeli units had different numbers
    2. Very grotesque, of course, depicted. Here is a Note by the Ambassador of the USSR to Israel D.S. Chuvakhin, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USSR A.A. Gromyko

    In 14.12.1966:
    Under the current conditions, our policy here, apparently, should be aimed mainly at stabilizing the democratic regime in Syria and strengthening the union of progressive Arab countries. Therefore, according to the Embassy, ​​the leaders of these countries should be warned in an acceptable form against such statements and actions that could be used by reactionary forces in order to damage the interests of the progressive development of the Arab states and serve as a reason for aggression against them.

    It cannot be denied that the speeches of the responsible leaders and various officials of these countries in support of the terrorist acts against Israel, calls for the elimination of Israel are actively used by both the Israeli and the world reaction in their interests.
    .................................................
    .....

    At the same time, we should continue to work on exposing to the world community the aggressive pro-imperialist course of the ruling circles of Israel.

    In this regard, in our opinion, the question of the appropriateness of using the speeches of progressive Israeli leaders in the Soviet press and, in particular, statements by Israeli Communist Arabs (the Tubi-Vilner group), in which, along with the militaristic policies of the Israeli government, are also condemned, should be studied. acts of sabotage carried out on Israeli territory.

    We should also continue to publish articles in our press that emphasize the invariability of Soviet policy aimed at maintaining peace and security in the Middle East, and indicate that provocations in this area entirely serve the interests of external aggressive forces. In this connection, one cannot fail to note the positive effect that the article “The Choice is Clear”, published in Pravda on December 4, this had on the public opinion of the countries of this region.

    A very interesting document and all is well stated.

    The decision to break off diplomatic relations with Israel in the USSR was taken on 10 June.

    It is appropriate to bring another document from the above site (it is not as big as a note).
    Statement by the Soviet Government to the Government of Israel

    07.06.1967

    Moscow, June 7, 1967

    From various sources, there are reports that the UN Security Council resolution on an immediate ceasefire and all military operations is not being implemented by the Israeli side. Israel rudely and defiantly tramples on this decision and continues the war against the Arab states.

    This position of the Government of Israel once again confirms the aggressive essence of your policy, which does not reckon with the elementary norms of international relations and openly disrespects the principles and goals of the Charter of the United Nations.

    The Soviet Government with all certainty warned the Government of Israel against the implementation of a policy of aggression and adventures. However, Israeli leaders did not heed the voice of reason.

    If now the Israeli government does not immediately comply with the general requirement of the states for an immediate ceasefire, which is expressed in a resolution of the Security Council, the Soviet Union will reconsider its attitude towards Israel and decide on the further maintenance of diplomatic relations with Israel, which by its actions opposes itself to all peace-loving states.

    Needless to say, the Soviet government will consider and implement other necessary measures arising from the aggressive policy of Israel.

      I have not had such an impression. Yes, and I could not physically quote all the documents and resolutions on the topic. I quote my article:
      In the current critical situation, the Soviet Union, which had repeatedly warned the Israeli government about the disastrous consequences of its adventure, broke off diplomatic relations with Israel and declared its readiness to apply appropriate measures against the aggressor if he continued his aggressive actions. The firm Soviet position was one of the main factors that caused the Israeli government in 16: 30 10 June to cease hostilities.
      It seems to be all clear. hi

        Regarding the incorrect comparison of battalions and brigades, I can only add that in the USSR of those times they were very fond of comparing "cold with long", or even purple with a speck. The comparative tables of the achievements of developed socialism with tsarist Russia 1913 were particularly pleasing to the eye. Smelting of alloyed steels, cast iron, coal mining, grain yields looked very presentable. The lines "Release of consumer goods", "Household electrical appliances", etc. looked good. As for the actual strength of the military units of the IDF and the Arab armies, it can be clarified with experts. Only I quickly do not promise to do it. Maybe someone from the readers will tell.

          The figure in the 650 aircraft Soviet historian took apparently from the ceiling. All sources agree that by the beginning of the war, Israel had before 300 combat aircraft. Accordingly, 1,3: 1 is quite a consensus ratio.

          We will survive this death somehow
          Everyone has money, vodka and canned food in reserve.
          And the graves are covered with sand.

          They say I am a glorious fellow, I will soon become a general,
          Well, if I do not go out of the fire,
          From the misfortune of this you will find yourself another
          And you will forget about me forever.

          I will grease with oil "Winchester", I am going to honor on honor,
          The enemy is defeated and will never recover,
          I am always sure of myself, I do not intend to retreat,
          I am not anybody, I am a white man.

    The most sonorous and worthy ending chord! It turned out very funny. So long expected by the haters of Israel and the Jewish Zionists, “Impartiality” is evident. The quote from Yitzhak Rabin is also unfamiliar to me. Maybe the Arab "winners" confused her with the famous saying of the sharp-tongued pilot Ezer Weizman, who slashed on the eve of the 1967 Arab aggression: "We will hit them quickly, clearly and elegantly!" And the practice of quoting Russian sources about glorious Jewish victories could continue. For example, I always read and honor Russians - ethnic Russian authors: Kapitonov, Prokhorov, Bovin, Shumilov. They describe the exploits of Jewish weapons in a purely Russian epic style. Bovin: "The Arabs excelled the Jews in all respects. Besides one thing: the ability to fight" (On the War of Independence). Kapitonov: “In complete radio silence, the squadron passed through the radars of enemy states. Given the uniqueness and importance of the operation, the Israeli Air Force commander Benny Peled personally sat at the helm of the flagship. The distance between the wings of enormous transporters sometimes reached five to ten meters. The paratroopers flew to the center of Africa. What awaited them away from homeland? " . And then everything is in the same heroic-epic style. Involuntarily, you think about the true nationality of Ilya, hiding under the pseudonym Muromets. You see the "Three heroes", the one that is average, that Jew! Thank you, Alexander, as if you were back in childhood. The truth came.

      First of all, casus Belli - there is a blockage of international straits. Secondly, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq, which joined them, formed a military coalition against Israel, mobilized all its armed forces, which brought them to the Israeli border for attack. Moreover, Egypt, in violation of international agreements, led the UN troops from Sinai, introduced its own and equipped the position for the offensive. What kind of surprise can we even talk about when the opponents armed to the teeth were standing opposite each other? And finally, thirdly. Before talking about Israeli aggression, it would be nice to not give out your personal opinion, say the UN position. And it did not recognize the six-day war as Israeli aggression.

        Now some regulars are throwing you a foul smelling thing. The main measure of war is considered to be direct battles on their territory. And the most interesting is that no one remembers the process of the annexation of Crimea, when the troops were on the peninsula before any action against the population began. I don’t understand such a position, but there’s nothing to be done about it, and not to convince the three times sane arguments hi

      Did the Soviet Union block Hitler’s access to the Baltic? Did Stalin threaten to dump the Germans in the sea until 22.06.41?
      Did Israel and Egypt have a non-aggression pact? And Soviet Russia allowed partisan attacks on the territory of the Reich against the soldiers and civilians of Deutschland from their territory?

In the centuries-old confrontation between the West and the USA, including for the USSR, countries freed from colonial dependence were natural potential allies, and if not allies, then partners or fellow travelers in this confrontation. Israel simply could not be at that time even if it wanted to, because it was very much connected with the economic and military assistance of Western Europe and the United States.

        You're wrong. Israel itself was freed from the colonialists in the person of Britain and Israel was more socialist than the USSR itself, and in some areas generally communist. Israel was not friends with the West and the USA at that time and would have been glad to be friends with Moscow, but ... the main sportsman kicked Israel with his foot and began to openly pursue the Jews in the scoop itself. In foreign policy, Moscow has relied on Arabs. Erroneously.

        Of course not on those. Russia supports those who walk around with the swastika, and not those who hold parades on 9 on May. Russia again throws money to the wind instead of benefiting from cooperation with developed Israel. Russia supports Islamic terrorists instead of fighting them. About the "values ​​and fundamental rules" of the Arabs, this is generally ridiculous. Dad Assad, your friend, seized power as a result of a military coup overthrowing the power of a legitimate ruler. Are these your values? Dad Assad wrapped thousands of Syrian citizens on tank tracks. Are these the fundamental rules? The son of an optometrist poisons Syrians with combat agents. Is that what you protect?
        Not on those you bet. Oh, not on those. As always, you will be thrown out and you will remain from scratch.

    1. The first to begin the mobilization of Egypt. But, as it turns out, it was Israel preparing for war.
    2. Until the end of May, all the Arab countries surrounding Israel mobilized. Their contingents sent Sudan, Algeria, Iraq. No, well, this is clearly Israel preparing for aggression.
    3. Nasser declares - "... this is a war of annihilation, Jews will be destroyed as a nation." Well, how incomprehensible, this is a vivid confirmation - Egypt belongs to the peace-loving states.
    4. With regard to incidents on the Syrian border, the author could describe them in more detail. Not limited to the propaganda stamp. But for some reason, bashfully blurred the topic.

      Dear Netwalker, in confirmation of your words: Firstly, it has long been known that "among the three heroes, Ilya Muromets is a Jew." This is a song, and from it. as you know, words cannot be thrown out. And he came from the city of Murom - known since time immemorial as a "merchant city", and, besides, he was lying on the stove for 33 years, and this is only possible in Kibbutz! And Jews live in Kibbutzim. Ilya - the name of Jewish origin, comes from a two-syllable Jewish “or-yahu” and means “God Yahweh”. Ilya Muromets, for his Khazar origin, the Kiev nobility long rejected.
      The remains of Ilya Muromets are in the Kiev Pechersk Lavra. Many scholars dispute the Jewish origin of Ilya Muromets. . The remarkable Russian geographer, ethnographer and folklorist Grigory Nikolayevich Potanin (1835-1920) came to the conclusion about the identity of the son of Ilya Muromets with the stealer who professed Khazar Judaism (why he is called Zhidovin) in a special study “Erke: the cult of the son of heaven in North Asia ”(Tomsk, 1916). Based on a comparison of various texts, it can be assumed that the lover of Ilya Muromets and mother Sokolnichka were in Khazar captivity either when they were pregnant or already with a baby in their arms. The son grew up and was raised in the Khazar environment as an unbridled dzhigit with cruel and wild morality: he tries to kill his father even when he found out who defeated him, and his mother was cut off.

      We will deal with the two remaining heroes.
      Dobrynya Nikitich (real name is Malkich) is also, according to other sources, Deborin Nyksisovich.
      Dobrynya is the governor of St. Vladimir, the brother of his mother Malushi (according to the annals of the "rabbis", that is, the daughter of the rabbi). The whole of Kiev knew that Dobryni’s mother was Jewish, but it was forbidden to speak from this, under pain of punishment by the gods
      There was a case in 979 when, traveling from Novgorod to Kiev with the intention of wresting power from the hands of his elder brother, Vladimir was led by Dobrynya, who wanted to take away the last bride, Rogneda, daughter of the Polotsk ruler of Rogvolod, to pass her off as Vladimir. Rogneda’s answer: “I don’t want for a rebecchich” offended Dobrynya. It is understandable, because he was reminded that his mother was the daughter of a rabbi, which in itself was a stunning insolence.
      About Alyosha Popovich. Here, any rational person does not even have any questions. It’s enough to say that “Popovich” translates as “Rabinovich”. By the way, for a long time no one is surprised that an adult has such a name - Alyosha. Not Alexei Popovich, namely Alyosha Popovich (Magen Rabinovich). These are typical Jewish shifter things, as in the case of Korney Ivanovich Chukovsky.

      So it goes. From childhood, I was amazed how such great people as three heroes could be goyim.

      But the truth triumphed, as if the anti-Semite and Black Hundred Vasnetsov were not trying to distort her in his picture.

      All around are theres ...

      Even if there is no water in the crane. .

      Thank you for the detailed comment.
      Without emotion, this whole article would have to look like this: “On the morning of 5 on June 1967, the Israeli Air Force operation began, destroying the Arab coalition Air Force in a few hours, after which Israel destroyed the Arab armies left without air support for 6 days.” Point.
      I was looking for the "impartial work of serious historians and military specialists" among the Eskimos of Greenland and among the aborigines of Australia, and even wanted to base the article on the work of a North American Indian by last name, if you do not believe Chingachgook. I was embarrassed by his initials - AM. I began to check and understood that such an author would not suit you either. His name was, do not believe it, Abram Moiseevich ...
      It was necessary to use the work of the "group of comrades" with flawlessly lettered names and surnames. This work is ideologically sustained, but nothing can be done is politically engaged. From the songs of the words do not throw. So wrote on this topic in those time.
      So, my last article was called prejudiced and biased. This is sarcastic, Russophobic and even deceitful, tendentious and stupid. Once, a barber hanged himself. He left a suicide note: "You can not perebёsh all ...". Alas, Sergey, he was right - not to please everyone ...

      To believe that Chuvakhin shed a tear is not necessary. Do you know how many people do not believe that the earth is round? What does it rotate around the sun? And after all nothing, live and quite well. I do not pretend to the global importance of the situation given in the article, so everything is fine with this. Moreover, if a resolution appears in the UN today that the land is flat and flattened by the Israelis, the resolution will be passed by a majority of Arab votes with the support of the Russian Federation. hi

        I agree to all 100%! No extremes needed - The best enemy of the good! hi

        Dear Alexander, thank you for your series of articles. Informative, interesting and weighted. It is a pity that due to the need to teach the stupid critics a little, this article in the style of the previous ones did not see the light. Write more, waiting. smile

          Thank you, Yaroslav, for kind words and interest in my articles. This article, I still write. Only a little later, about a month later, on the 51 anniversary of the events. Yes, I will post it not on VO, but on some third-party resource. If you are interested in this topic, while the court is on the case, take a look at my profile. There are already more than two dozen articles both on the famous Doomsday War, and on the very little known War of Attrition, and on the Suez crisis and the fight against terror. hi

            Alexander, when I came across this resource on one of your articles, the first thing I climbed into your profile and read ALL of your publications. I learned a lot for myself. When he was repatriated, he was “young and stupid” and therefore he missed many historical aspects of the formation of our state. I am very impressed with your writing style, easy to read. I will be waiting for your article.

      Many thanks to the author, all three articles were interesting. Especially the fact that without flipping through a bunch of sources, you can get an idea of ​​what was happening on the other side of the conflict and the reaction of countries not directly participating. Could you advise a couple of Arabist analysts on Syria, Iran and the Kurds. Of course, there is a lot of information on the Internet, but finding a decent analytics is not easy. Thanks in advance if it's not difficult for you smile

        Thanks for the kind words.
        The fact is that the analyst is absolutely not my part. I study history - “the affairs of bygone days”, and modern analytics in our so rapid time eventful is not a grateful thing. It is not even an analyst, but various kinds of attempts to interpret what is happening. You see for yourself, they are always wrong. hi

    Wonderful article. Summarizes different points of view. Informative enough. And if we talk about Israel and Tzahal, he always paid tribute to them.

    Alexander. Thank you for the article and for the work done. good He smiled at how they wrote about this in the Arab world and in the USSR. Thankfully most of these sources have long been exposed 500 times. Maybe they have some kind of rational grain, but it’s not very big. Well, there’s no such habit of admitting your mistakes , punctures, defects lol after reading the comments, you came to the conclusion that even if you wrote that Israel started all this catfuss with the support of the entire imperialist world, reptilians, Darth Vader and other aliens, and the Arab world led by the USSR defeated everyone !!!! reproach you anyway in Russophobia and bias laughing I hope for the continuation of your articles and preferably in more repeat with respect hi sorry you can’t subscribe. recourse

And what kind of analytics can there be, without understanding the reasons, “without the history of bygone days.” I am also pleased to read your articles, in my opinion, very relevant. smile hi

    I was looking for the "impartial work of serious historians and military specialists" among the Eskimos of Greenland and among the aborigines of Australia, and even wanted to base the article on the work of a North American Indian by last name, if you do not believe Chingachgook. I was embarrassed by his initials - AM. I began to check and understood that such an author would not suit you either. His name was, do not believe it, Abram Moiseevich ...

    Yes, honestly very interesting series of articles, but this comment completely amused)
    For the sake of objectivity, I will say that the amount of abandoned working equipment is amazing. This is probably in Syria now to look around. Damn really Arabs that give that throw.
    Thanks so much for the work. hi

    Arabs are the worst warriors. Israel is a wolf, and the Arab countries are a flock of sheep.

    The author would have needed less pathos and more clear conclusions! To cheer the patriots sober dumb! Israel is a very dangerous and determined opponent of Russia in the Middle East! And Russia from the word has nothing to oppose to Israel at all! That in 1967, that in 2018, the Israeli army is the most powerful, perfectly trained and perfectly armed with the most modern military equipment! Together with a decisive and uncompromising political leadership that clearly and firmly pursues its policies, using everything to achieve its goals, this adversary is doubly dangerous !! And not to reckon with him is very dangerous! Israel is determined and if necessary, at any moment it will start a war against Iran! Of course, under the guise of the United States! I really hope that the Russian General Staff is losing various options for the development of the situation in order to work out at least some kind of solution to curb the possible aggression of Israel! But alas, there is little hope! What the USSR could afford, with its power and authority in the world, Russia is beyond its reach!

      Why You Need It? There is a conflict between the two Middle Eastern countries. What do you want before this? Is there really nowhere to put up resources? Are all problems within the country already resolved?

    I recommend reading the work "Anatomy of the Middle East Conflict" by E.M. Primakov, whom we have not yet been declared saints. Apparently, this is still ahead

      Anatomy of the Middle East conflict

      I am very good at scientific literature. Not in any dependence on my point of view on the issue being addressed. I am interested in all schools and all trends on the topic. But this book was written to him 40 years ago - in 1978 year. Since that time, a lot of water has flowed. Israel made peace with Egypt and Jordan. I returned under these contracts more than 60 thousand sq. Km. BW has long been blowing new winds, new players have appeared. His favorite student, who defended his thesis on the topic of Holocaust denial - Abu Mazen, today holds the “president” in the Palestinian Authority. To study the Anatomy of the Middle East conflict on this book, how to plot a plane to Australia on a pack of "Belomor". Then the book was already an agitprop duck, and today, after reading it, you need to wash your hands well. hi

    The thing is that the Zionist movement is imperialistic in its ideology, aggressive in its goals, racist in its content and fascist in its methods of action. And Israel is its obedient instrument in Palestine, the springboard of neo-colonialism and imperialism in its struggle to maintain influence in Africa and Asia.

    That's how I understand the entire content of the article!

    It seems to me that it is wrong to talk about the independent policy of Israel ... Israel is like a physical projection of Imperialism ..
    ... along with the Jews who die for Israel, there are many Jews who deny this path and the creation of a Jewish state, and there are a considerable number of them ...

    “Impartial and impartial” is not possible. This is now in Israel a little more than 6 million people. And then - and even less. And there are no oils in Israel. But the pilots are several times more than the Arabs. Miracle!
