The day the Six-Day War started – level 1


It is May 1967. Egypt closes the access to the Red Sea for Israel. Soon, the Six-Day War starts between Israel and some Arabian countries.

It is June 5, 1967. Many Israeli planes fly to Egypt. The planes attack Egyptian army airports. Many Egyptian planes are destroyed.

After the attack, Israel controls the sky. Israel attacks Egypt on the ground. Israel wins. Israel has access to the Red Sea again.

The Israeli soldiers also go to Jerusalem. They take some parts of Jerusalem from Jordan.

Four days later, Israel attacks Syria. Israel takes some part of Syria.

The war changes the map of the whole area. The problems still continue. Soon, more wars between Arabs and Israel come.

Difficult words: access (a situation when you can go to someplace), army (many soldiers), destroyed (very broken).

What were the immediate consequences of the Six-Day War for Israel and the surrounding Arab countries?
